1.                                Introduction

===============================================================================


The Anamagon's Temple is a small interactive fiction adventure that was made by
Mediandroid in 1988. The aim is to help David rescue his father, who has been
captured by the Anamagon. The game is large in terms of locations and items,
but it is possible to complete the game without solving many of the puzzles or
using many items. This walkthrough shows the quickest way I have found to
complete the game (48 moves) and skips all unnecessary items and puzzles.
