Synopsis
THE POWER OF LIGHT OR THE FORCE OF DARKNESS? YOU DECIDE!

As a Divine Being you have a group of followers from whom you derive your power.
The more followers you have and the greater their achievements, the more power you wield. Unfortunately, there is another group of people who follow a different deity.
Since there's barely enough room in the world for your own magnificence, two won't do.
You must rid the world of the opposition. To do this, you will use your great power to move the earth and your devout followers to crush the misguided.

Just tried this on my SA RiscPC, RiscOS 3.71, !adffs 2.20. I get "File 'GOARM3JIT' not found" press space etc... Clicking or pressing space, the music starts but I'm returned to the desktop with apparently nothing running other than what was before...!

You need the latest ADFFS beta to run it on StrongARM. *GOARM3JIT starts the ARM3 JIT prior to the game loading, looks like you've got a mix of old ADFFS with a new obey.zip file from one of the betas.
