This is a copy of the first ever text adventure game which was written to run on a large mainframe computer. The aim of the game is to search for hidden treasure, which is often guarded, and then return it to your home base.

Tony: The program responds almost immediately. And with your commands appearing in yellow and the program's messages in white, the game is fairly simple to play. 7/10

John: This is a good conversion of the original which requires plenty of concentration and practice to be successful. The cassette insert is colourful and includes very comprehensive instructions. 8/10

Mark: An adventure that has an extensive vocabulary, always keeps you interested and puts your brain to work. A good adaptation of the original. 9/10
