The ZX81 edition by Abersoft (1982) differs from other versions in the following points:

* The maximum score is 140 points.
* The bridge troll does not exist, and hence neither does the golden eggs puzzle. The eggs are a normal treasure.
* The dwarf and pirate do not exist, and neither does the pirate chest. The pirate maze is still there but does not serve a purpose.
* The lamp does not run out of batteries, and the vending machine (and associated maze) are not there either.
* The bottle is initially empty of water, and has to be filled first before watering the plant. Besides, the bottle cannot be filled at the stream, reservoir, or other locations except for the bottom of the canyon where a stream runs (down the Edge of Small Pit).
* There is no flute - the snake can be dealt with just by dropping the cage with the bird.
* There is a bug related to the number of objects that can be carried. Under some circumstances this number is reduced to three, which makes it very difficult to manage some sections. It is unclear what triggers the bug.
