            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.

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
desktop.

        ---------------------------------------------

 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
together.
   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
Nostram feel.
   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.

           The POWERFIST LICENCWARE

    Disk 1 :-  SNOTT 93 (1 meg)   &    PDOS V1.3

     Snott was  previously  a  commercial  game  released  by  Graphic
Visions (now part of POWERFIST).This  updated version is faster,easier
to play and overall it is a exellent game.Your aim as SNOTT,a man made
creation to save the  earth,is  to  collect  the  orbs from each level
which threaten to destroy your  creators  home land.With four complete
levels of platform capers and hidden  bonuses  this game is a must for
collections.
      Also on the disk  is  the  full  version  of  the POWERFIST DISK

more.

   DISK 2 :-  GHALFA 1

    During your journey home  from  the  space  crusades your ship has
crashed over a desolate planet -  or  so  you thought.The remains of a
cruiser lie across the land and within the fuel you need to escape You
must race through the ship  to  the  fuel  stores  at the heart of the
carrier.An easy  task  if  it  wasn't  were  the  aliens  that breeded
there.In space no one can hear you scream - or so they say.
           Includes the original Snott.

   DISK 3 :-  SEVEN GALAXIES

   Its centuries since you were closed down.You are the cleaning robot
of a long abandoned ship  floating  through  space without a crew.When
you are awakened to clean  up  the  ship  you  soon relise its not the
centuries of dirt that will be the  the problem but the resident alien
within each level and the hordes they have brought with them.
      A quick bit of laser practise though  and off in a overhead romp
around blasting the crap  out  of  everything  that  moves.This is the
biggest game to date written  by  Powerfist  and  the puzzles to solve
within are awsome.
             Includes :Help program and POWERSHOW.

  DISK 4 :-  HUNCHY 1066

DISK 6 :-  DELUXE NOSTRAM  ( THE HALF MEG VERSION )

     A blood thirsty game if ever  I saw one,lead several squadrens of
tanks into battle against suicidal soilders.They run at you from every
angle spraying you with bullets,with  machine  guns  and rifles - some
without guns.But with your armoured tank  you dispatch of them through
your gun or through  your  tracks.A  combination  of  chaos engine and
llamatron make this unmissable.Along  with  the  strategy element this
makes for  an  exellent  game.Includes  exellent  sound  and  a superb
soundtrack.

in a platformy,laddery  type  of  way.With  superb  cute  graphics and
