[1] TIME AND MAGIK is an enhanced compilation of the previously unreleased trilogy (for 16-bit platforms including Amiga) of Level 9 text/graphic adventures: LORDS OF TIME, RED MOON, and THE PRICE OF MAGIK.

[2] Game designs by Sue Gazzard, David Williamson & Pete Austin; additional text by Ruth Pracey. KAOS adventure system by Mike Austin and John Jones-Steele; Game coding by Pete & Mike Austin, Simon Aspinall and John Jones-Steele; multiformat computer conversions by Nick Austin and Mike Bryant. Graphics by Godfrey Dowson and Neil Strudwick.

[3] The U.S. version by Datasoft was released several months after the UK release in March 1989.

[4] Original game contents included an instruction booklet containing hints for each game in the trilogy; a novella entitled 'Time and Magik' by Peter McBride; and an advert inviting customers to send a SSAE for the "Official Secrets" clue sheet to the game (see HERE).

[5] The Amiga release of TIME AND MAGIK features the following enhancements (particularly compared to the 8-bit versions):

- Colour pictures (use the mouse, with its left button pressed, to slide pictures up and down), which included location graphics that were digitised from oil paintings by Godfrey Dowson.
- Picture cache to reduce unnecessary disk loading.
- Recall and editing of previous commands via the cursor and backspace keys. - Undo command to reverse the previous move.
- Save/Restore game to disk.
- RAM save/restore game in memory.

- An enhanced adventure interpreter which can be used with KNIGHT ORC and GNOME RANGER. Copy the relevant game to a new disk and replace the 'MENU', 'GAME1' and 'PICPROC' files with those from the original TIME AND MAGIK disk.
