Synopsis

Plot

A weird house stands on the edge of a sheer cliff. Its strange twisted turrets looming out of an always gloomy sky. No wall seems straight, no corner a right-angle. Not surprisingly no one lives there - well no human that is.

People say the richest man in the world spent his last days there. Strangely, no one ever saw his body...

You have decided to learn more about this mysterious building, perhaps it contains some abandoned treasures that will reward your curiosity.

Notes

Haunted House may be found as a type-in listing in Write Your Own Adventure Programs, a free PDF of this book is available for download from Usborne Publishing (scroll to near the bottom of the page).

The full game covered most of the listed platforms, but a special cut-down version of the game was included for the ZX81.

I still have the book for this adventure, including my pencil notes for converting it to the standard Sharp MZ-700 BASIC.
