Rings of Power and use them to remake the Rod of Creation, thus restoring

A fantasy RPG utilizing the same scrolling isometric world scheme as Populous, but not as successfully. In addition, the colors are garish and animation is awfully jerky. The authors were obviously inspired by Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy but their enthusiasm did not seem to spill over into making a good game. In fact, the hidden "Easter egg" may be the best thing about it.
