Made in 1981 for the Apple II, Wizard and the Princess was the second Hi-Res
adventure made by On-Line Systems (later known as Sierra Entertainment). A
princess has been kidnapped from the land of Serenia by an evil wizard. The
King has sent out a request to all people for help in rescuing his daughter and
offers half his kingdom to the person that can bring her back to Serenia. You
play an unnamed adventurer in the game who sets out to find the princess.
