Somewhere between the purple mountains, and the seas of the Seven Islands lies a hidden valley, a land that time has not touched.

All remained peacful and tranquil, until darkness descended upon the land, light and freedom were banished from its homely hills, and the evil set seed.

Death and hunger spread, and all who remained within the walls of the village became stricken or hag ridden with haunted evil. All who had deserted the village sought refuge elsewhere. The village was now in complete control by darkness.

My Memories Playing Nightshade

Playing games on my ZX Spectrum meant that I had to hijack the family TV in the living room and set up my ZX Spectrum and load games by cassette.

Later, I managed to get a portable black and white TV in my bedroom which wasnt quite as good as playing on the family TV but had the benefit of allowing me to play anytime.
