Synopsis

Notes

The game was written as The Scepter but Bug Byte decided to publish it under the name Adventure.

On his, now archived, website Simon wrote:

This was my first attempt at writing a text adventure. It was written in ZX81 BASIC but used some Z80 machine code routines to handle command input; the standard BASIC functions being unsuitable for some reason.

I have no idea what made me submit it to Bug-Byte for publication, but I've always been glad that I did. This was the first step in my career as a software developer. It was written while studying for my GCSE O-Levels. When the Head of Year got to hear about it she contacted the local newspaper; so I achieved my fifteen minutes of fame.

My title for the game was always The Scepter but Bug-Byte chose to publish it under the name Adventure. At the time I had no reason to question the name change but looking back perhaps it was an attempt to cash in on the fame of the Crowther and Woods classic.
