Seeking a text adventure written in BASIC

Post by thwill » Fri Aug 07, 2020 12:29 am

Apologies in advance for being off topic but I am looking for a relatively simple text adventure written in BASIC with a creative commons compatible license that I can port for inclusion in a FREE "Welcome Tape" that I am preparing for the Colour Maximite 2 (
https://geoffg.net/maximite.html
).

Can anyone help me out?

Best wishes,

Tom

In trade I offer a Z-machine implementation written in BASIC: https://github.com/thwill1000/zmim though I'm afraid you'll need to port it to an ARM copro to have any hope of running in on the Beeb.

Regards,

Tom

This was written in BASIC back in the day.

I can hardly remember writing it, tbh. Fairly sure it wasn't a wholly original theme.

I have written a text adventure in BASIC, it’s called Moonbase Escape and was “published” (sounds very grand!) a couple of months ago, details here:

MoonBase Escape Rev 2

Please drop me a line via PM if interested and I’ll see if I can help.

Looks like thwill decided to go with Scott Adams's original BASIC version of Pirate Adventure from BYTE magazine (December 1980):
