The Black Cauldron was an adventure game based on the Disney movie of the same name, which was based on the Chronicles of Prydain books by Lloyd Alexander. The evil Horned King stole the pig HenWen, who has mystical abilities that allow observers to see what they seek through the pig's thought projections. The Horned King sought the mystic Black Cauldron that would release the dead and allow him to rule the land.

The game follows an assistant pig farmer named Taran, who must get Henwen back and defeat the evil Horned King.
