This 40-hour, seven-floppy RPG won a cult following on Japanese Macs, but never made it to any other language or platform. Set in a timeline where Edo Japan has colonized the orbiting ruins of an advanced civilization, it boasted a unique mouse-driven combat interface.

Citadel: Adventure of the Crystal Keep
Postcraft International, 1989
We have a slightly used copy of v1.22. Should you come across a mint, unplayed copy of Citadel, please lock the disk and make an image of it! (There is also one unconfirmed report of a v1.5.)
