THE GREATEST ADVENTURE YOU WILL EVER EXPERIENCE
DISK NUMBER FIVE
DELUXE NOSTRAM (THE ONE MEG VERSION)
The warrior fell through the rocky ground.His eyes slammed shut and
when he awoke a tower lie before him,the sky above still rumbling.The
warrior had the wings of flight and the tower of NOSTRAM 93 was no
more but before lie him something else.
Back in the village of Nostram a local warrior,thinking that no
one as returned from the tower steps forward to conquer the
monolith.He does not know of the warrior that as now twice conquered
it and defeated the evil gods.Stepping into the darkness he believes
he will defeat the gods and return with the wings of flight.
The gods extend the tower as he steps within and the doors slam
behind him.Shall you now join the other warrior in time.
SETTING THE STORY STRAIGHT
Nostram,the shareware game,set you as the warrior against the
monolith of Nostram to return with the wings of flight.As you exit the
tower with the wings you knew you would return.While walking back to
the village of Nostram you fall asleep and awake 15 years later,
having not aged a day.The tower as been rebuilt and you back to
destroy the gods again.In NOSTRAM '93(available only from Merlin
PD)you must once again defeat the gods.When you did defeat them though
you were sent some were else,before another tower.
In DELUXE NOSTRAM you play a new warrior who as waited to enter for
many a year and now intends to defeat the evil gods.
This fully one meg version pits you against new
puzzles,traps,monsters and 70 rooms of true classic NOSTRAM action.
HOW TO PLAY
A truely classic game which needs little guidance.The help you will
need to play is available by double clicking on the HELP.PRG on
NOSTRAM - THE CULT
This read me file needn't talk about how to play the game,thats in
the HELP.PRG,but I would like to talk about NOSTRAM.The idea was
concieved by IAN WILKINSON while he was a member of a group called
GRAFIC VISIONS.When I (Daniel Walton) wrote to him in 1990 and sent
him some examples of my work he replied saying that my compnay
(SURESOFT) and his company (GRAFIC VISIONS) should write a game
NOSTRAM came from the prophet NOSTRADAMOS and also from the name of
the ship in ALIEN - NOSTRAMO.The game idea came from many games.Every
one says "it's like gods" but a lot of games are like gods and Nostram
is like a lot of other games.We were influenced by Gods,Manic
Miner,Jet Set Willy and alot of other games but essentially Nostram is
our own work and we are very proud of it.The computer world took to it
straight away.After a week of work on it and the break up of Grafic
Visions and me splitting from SureSoft POWERFIST came to be.
The release date of NOSTRAM was December 1st 1992.This was Nostram
Day.Merlin PD asked us to give them the exclusive rights to the sequel
- NOSTRAM '93 (THE ONE MEG & HALF MEG VERSIONS) and we did.
DELUXE NOSTRAM was being planned while both the other were being
written and I have finally finished it.The Nostram games - The
original Nostram (with half meg demo),Nostram '93,Nostram '93 (half
meg-exactly the same as the one meg version) and now the one meg
version of DELUXE NOSTRAM (and soon the half meg version - which is a
totally different tower) are getting a cult following.Please continue
to Support POWERFIST LICENCEWARE.
We do have the half meg version of this to follow (which is very
different in design) and maybe even NOSTRAM 2 - at last.The true
sequel would be quite different to the others but it will have that
If you would like to comment on Nostram or ask any thing about it
then send a S.S.A.E to the address at the end of this document.The
same address can be used for all Powerfist queries.
