Notes

This was published by Argus Specialist Publications in Games Computing, issue 15, March 1985, pp. 52-5. It was an example adventure using the techniques explained in a series of articles titled 'Adventure into Programming' by the author. The original listing was for the BBC with conversion notes for the Amstrad CPC 464, Commodore 64, Electron, MSX, Oric, Sharp, Spectrum, and TRS-80 (plus TRS-80 clone Video Genie).

The game was published, seemingly unofficially, for Commodore VIC-20 in the Australian publication Your Computer's Bumper Book of Programs, pp.69-71, May 1988. The author was listed as "Jimmy Fang" which suggests Steve Lucas was not aware of this reprint. The VIC-20 version is available on the VIC-20 listings site.

The "Steve Fang" listing was enhanced and ported to the Commodore 64 by Dorothy Millard. This version is slightly different to the original.
