Synopsis

Plot

After being drawn irresistibly aboard a mysterious spaceship, the player must escape by working with the creatures chained up in the onboard zoo -- before becoming a permanent resident!

Notes

his was adventure #16 in the SoftSide Adventure of the Month Club subscription service. It was released in September 1982 and first advertised in SoftSide magazine, issue 33, vol. 5, no. 12, September 1982, p. 59.

This is called 'Menagerie' in the instructions and the game itself and 'Menagerie Adventure' in the original advertisement. The latter was written by SoftSide staff, not the original author, so the former is considered to be the correct title. There is a typo in the title screen of the Atari version, where it is called 'Menagarie'. This has been corrected in the bug-fixed version.

This is a fairly linear adventure, with straightforward, reasonably logical puzzles; there are lots of diagonals in the map, but no mazes.
