Introduction

Adventure lets you explore a fantasy world, with descriptions of the places you visit, the characters you encounter, and the objects you find in your quest for treasure. You can make use of weapons that you collect along the way, and say magic words that are revealed to you. At each stage, your action is determined by entering the appropriate command.

Commands

The following commands are available when playing Adventure:

GO X
Move in direction X, where X is NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, WEST, UP or DOWN. The GO is optional, and the direction may be shortened to the first letter.

If an exit is locked, a magic word may need to be said. You may also need a certain object to get through a portal.

KILL X
Try to kill person X, in self-defense, or to gain the treasure that they are carrying. You will be more effective if you are holding an appropriate weapon.

SAY X
Say a magic word.

LOOK
Search room for treasure.

TAKE X
Pick up object X. TAKE ALL will pick up all the objects. Beware of carrying too much, as your fighting ability might be impaired.

DROP X
Opposite of TAKE. DROP ALL to drop all the objects you are carrying.

INVENTORY
Gives you a list of all the objects you are currently carrying, together with their values.

EXITS
Print out room description and exits. This is done automatically on entering a new room.

VALUE
Give the total value of all the objects you are carrying. If you are in the correct room, you will win the game.

QUIT
Leave the game.

Note that the above commands cannot be abbreviated, although descriptions of objects and people may be.

Adventure Games

Any one of the following three adventures can be played with Atom Adventure:

  1. Dungeon
    Go underground and search for treasure in a maze of interconnected caverns, tunnels and caves, inhabited by friendly and unfriendly monsters. You must find at least 1,100 tokens of treasure, and take it to the Throne Room.
  2. House
    You start on the doorstep of a haunted house, in whose rooms lurk the ghosts of some familiar people. Find treasure and take it to the Grand Banqueting Hall to win the game.
  3. Intergalactic
    You play the part of an intergalactic traveller in this mind-bogglingly weird trip from Earth to the most distant parts of the galaxy. To win you must survive battles against the inhabitants of alien planets, and return home with at least 2,175 tokens.
