Re: Island of Xaan - Second Guard

Hi,
Having just dipped my toe in to the world of adventure- writing, I am very interested to know how an almost impossible to guess 2 word answer is still considered to be a "good puzzle"?
No arguments with "good company" though :wink:

Re: More adventure game BETA Testers wanted!

Thank you to all my testers. I have updated the FINAL version to the first post. I hope nobody minds, but I am reserving the biggest thank you for Lurkio. He has done some amazing work over the development of this game. As written, it just did not fit in a standard beeb, which I had decided was impo...

Hi,

Try to clear your mind and get to the end-game.

Re: Woodbury End

The plot of this game has always drawn me towards it. I am a fan of old British Sci-fi and horror films, and it reminds me of old black and white classics such as Village of the damned (The Midwich cuckoos). Then it loads, and my eyeballs burn :shock: I wonder if anyone could Re-write this in MODE 7...

Hi Melchett, I have decided to leave the bit that you had difficulty finding... exactly as it is :D As you said (paraphrasing) it doesn't need any more clues. But, I have had second thoughts about the ending. I am tweaking it AGAIN for added drama but *maybe* a little more clarity (or maybe not :lol...

Re: More adventure game BETA Testers wanted!

Thanks Melchett, There's a lot to go through here! Firstly, the only file that will complete at the moment is "B" which you need to be in MASTER mode with Co-Pro which sets PAGE=&0800. Lurkio is using his skillz to crunch the code down. He is doing this a little at a time, as every time he alters so...

Don't forget - if you do the same actions as you did before, you will now be killed rather than wandering forever..
So it is still up to you to find what you have missed!
