Swords and Sorcery (Keypunch)
Swords and Sorcery is a game package published by Keypunch Software in 1986 that included four games, Swords of Glass, Amulet of Yendor, The Golden Wombat, and NYC
Like much of what Keypunch did, the games were either stolen or rip-offs. The Golden Wombat is a rouge-like game that was actually a plagiarized version of the game
Castle Adventure by Kevin Bales renamed to sound like the Infocom title, The Golden Wombat of Destiny. Amulet of Yendor is named after
an item in Nethack, and look similar to many other text-adventure game of the time. Swords of Glass borrows from Wizardy and was probably also stolen since it is void of
credits. NYC Adventure, also without credits, is an interactive fiction similar in design to many other Infocom games.
