Kingdom: Shadoan 2

Kingdom II 2 Shadoan PC CD find relics reassemble amulet wizard adventure game! 






Unless the writers intend to dream up some further adventures for the young hero, Lathan, Shadoan completes the tale of the magical lands of the Argent Kings that was begun in the first title, Kingdom: The Far Reaches.

If you are not familiar with the first episode, the game contains a short video sequence to bring you up to date. Once upon a time (well, it is a fairy tale) the Argent Kings ruled supreme over the Kingdom and at the end of their reign they forged a magical amulet and handed it into the care of the wise, Mobus to be later given to their heir. However, Mobus had a wicked brother, Torloc the Twisted, who plotted to steal the Amulet and rule over the lands. To protect his charge Mobus shattered it into five pieces and, many years later, as the rightful heir, Lathan must travel the lands and retrieve the five relics that comprise the amulet.

The quest continues

In Kingdom: The Far Reaches Lathan found three of the precious relics, the Black Mace, The Orb of Mobus and the Hunting Horn, in this game the search is on for the remaining two, the Dagger of Arne and the Crown of Malric. The story is plain and unembellished, the object is simply to find the relics and reassemble them to make the amulet. There are no side quests and no serious complications or tricky obstacles to overcome, making the game particularly good for younger players and a possible choice for anyone new to computer games.

Timed sequences in this game tend to make it especially suitable for children although this doesn't mean that adults won't enjoy it. It's one of those games that is good for all the family. It has two difficulty levels to cater for a range of players -- apprentice level and wizard level -- and, as with The Far Reaches, the apprentice level curtails some of the untimely deaths and allows for more time to make decisions in the timed sequences. The game also has a parental install mode which edits the game further for younger children although at no time does it glorify blood and suffering.

Though you may lose a life occasionally, Shadoan is a game where it is almost impossible to get stuck, about the only real jeopardy you might face is in over-using the scrolls that your mentor, Daelon, makes for you. They must be used wisely or failure is guaranteed. Also, you are allotted three 'lives', with the opportunity to regenerate if you visit the correct location. So there is plenty of scope to make mistakes so long as you don't slip up at the very end of your life-line when there is no option but to restore or restart the game.

It's a fun fairy-tale game with entertaining graphics and catchy music that works very well to build up the atmosphere. Whilst not a game for experienced adventurers this one is good for all the family, and especially for the young who will probably appreciate the urgency of the timed sequences a lot more than adults.

For DOS/Windows (via DOSBox) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.
