Synopsis

Notes

Originally written in BASIC for the Sharp MZ80B by Mario Pettenghi and published as a type-in ‚Äč‚Äčlisting on MCmicroComputer magazine n. 40 - April 1985.

Antonino Porcino documented the background of the game in an article in Retro Magazine and also maintains a a GitHub related to the adventure. He has produced a revised source that fixes a couple of bugs with the original.

The type-in version of the game didn't use any unique Sharp MBASIC features so was easy to port to other BASICs of the time.

There is a port for TI-99/4A by Ermanno Betori that uses a separate data file for the descriptions.

Antonino Porcino has produced a port to Laser 500, C64 & C128, and C16/Plus 4.

Francesco Fiorentini has produced a port for Amstrad CPC and also one for TI-99/4A.

In 2023, Jim Gerrie translated the original game to English and produced a version for TRS-80 MC-10 under the title of Spaceship Farmer.
