Your mission is to recover a ruby that is being used in top secret government projects as a part in a laser projector.

"The ruby has been captured by a secret spy ring known as Chaos. We suspect they are under cover somewhere in this neighborhood. Good luck!"


Originally published in October 1980 for the TRS-80 by CLOAD magazine.

The game was later included in the Captain 80 Book of BASIC Adventures pp.225-233.

There is a version for PC, credited to the Members of the International PC Owners. The listing states that it was, "translated from TRS-80 version on CPMNET BBS by Pete Wohlmut 10-3-82". This version is bugged, but a fixed version is listed below.

At least two different versions exist for the C64. The C64 version has been adapted to make an unofficial version for Plus 4; see here.

There is an Inform port of the game, by J.K. Thomas.

Jim Gerrie has created a version of the game for the TRS-80 MC-10

The game has been ported to C by Willus.

Ported to the Amstrad CPC by Carsten Dost (SRS).

The original game has also been translated into French (MSX) and German (Atari).

Full of bugs, the PC port as well; I haven't checked the C64 version. I put together a debugged PC version which seems to run OK, but sadly the game is not really worth it.
