Travelling across the lonely Yorkshire Moors one night, you are stranded when your engine mysteriously cuts out. It's dark, and there's the threat of thunder in the air. Your companion, Jenny, volunteers to search for a house where she can phone the recovery services from, while you nobly stay with the car. After an hour, though, you begin to get worried. After all, you've seen the Rocky Horror Picture Show! Steeling yourself against the driving rain, you trudge off in the direction you think she took - up an overgrown driveway to a spooky looking manor house...

Created using The Quill and attendant programs this is a neat effort. It reads well. The location descriptions are neither so long that you fall asleep or so short that you miss them. The text is ably supported by the graphics, which, given the nature of the beast - a quickie, Quilled, cheap adventure - should be applauded. They are tasteful, complementary to the plot, and have obviously had some thought put into them.

It's nice to see that there's a 128K version included on the other side of the tape with more graphics, more objects to fool around with and more text in the description.

Excellently plotted Quilled adventure with great descriptions and neat graphics. Real value for money.
