Micro Adventure

Post by Dethmunk » Sat May 18, 2019 10:27 pm

I'm getting together my first 'Type In Basic Series'. Taking type in listings and giving them a modern update, sort of show what they could be with modern tools. :wink:
First up will be a small adventure called Micro Adventure (originally called MicroPuzzle) published in Usborne's Weird Computer Games book. :)
Its a fun little project. Enjoying typing it in and the inevitable de-bugging... LOL
Currently drawing up the location graphics.... Should run on BBC Micro, Electron and Master (I assume).

If I can, I might add some additional puzzles or locations too. :wink:

That’s looks fantastic.
If you ever get the time, it would be good to see your interpretation of "Haunted House" from the Osbourne book "write your own adventure programs".

Back in the day I borrowed this from my primary school library. Having dutifully typed it in a typo in the secret spell made the game impossible to finish, resulting in my user name on this forum!
