Synopsis

Plot

Your demented uncle McMurphy has left you a $10,000,000 inheritance. All you have to do it find it. Your uncle McMurphy was a most unusual man. His investments yielded him a great fortune and much time to devote to his passion for games of all types. It was his interest in these diversions that led to the conditions of his will. McMurphy felt that any heir worthy of inheriting his estate must PROVE that he is worthy. Beginning with only a small clue you must find your fortune hidden somewhere in the mansion grounds.

Notes

Copyrighted with a date of 1984, it was originally released for C64 in around about 1985 by Ultrabyte; advertising in the August 1985 issue of Ahoy, for example. This version was recovered & archived in 2022.

There are at least two later Shareware MS-DOS versions; one dated 1987, the other 1989.

The archetypical "find treasure hidden in an old mansion" game, but quite detailed and full of things to do and investigate. If you get into the mood it can be fun to play, and not that difficult. All PC versions (there are a few) seem to be affected by a very strange bug where on occasion the command is parsed as a completely different thing and executed, with random consequences; also come map connections look too odd to be right. It's finishable in spite of the wobbly coding.
