In the original version the Quests were easier. The USA version made the monsters stronger and introduced Chaos Spells.

This page lists all the "Evil Wizard's upgrades" that were introduced in the USA version. It is mostly useful for European and South American readers.

In general, before coming to the US, all monsters had only 1 BP (Body Point) and there were no Chaos Spells. Also, in the US localization spear traps and chest traps are not anymore disarmed as soon as they're found, but they have to be disarmed one by one like pit traps.

Morcar was renamed Zargon in the USA. ...Or perhaps "Zargon the American" defeated "Morcar the British" and trained all monsters to become stronger?

  • This adventure was added for the US version, and only in later editions of the European version, albeit in an easier version.

    • In room "A" there is an empty chest; there is no chest in room "B" (it was empty).
    • The chest in room "D" contains 150 Gold Coins instead of 84.
