|Welcome to the Magnetic Scrolls Gallery. In the lost world of the text adventure, the name Magnetic Scrolls stands for superior story telling, great humor, brilliant puzzles and a parser that rivals Infocom's. What set Magnetic Scrolls adventures apart, however, were the stunning pictures whose quality was groundbreaking at the time. These unique pieces of art do not deserve to fade away on old floppy disks or to be locked up in emulator images. I've created these pages so that anyone can enjoy the beautiful images that have made Magnetic Scrolls adventures so special. This site also contains high-quality scans of the boxes and background materials, to document and preserve them for the future.|

The C64 versions work perfectly on CCS64 and (with a minor graphics flaw) on Frodo V4.0 or V4.1 (tested on Win95/DirectX and on Linux). You will have no luck with C64S 2.51, or any emulator that does not support processor-level 1541 emulation. The Amiga versions work on UAE.
The best way to play MS games is to use the Magnetic Scrolls Interpreter by Niclas Karlsson. This amazing piece of work allows you to run the MS adventures on most operating systems without resorting to emulators. You can get it at the IF-archive.
A word about copyright: Magnetic Scrolls does not exist any more, their games have been sold out for years and no reissues are planed. Commercially, MS is dead. I therefore claim that this site constitutes fair use of Magnetic Scrolls material on these grounds:
