Re: MicroMUD for the C64

I'm still working on a hints file, but I'm trying to include everything and it's taking longer than I expected. There are a few things I can't figure out: How to light the lamp! Why sometimes I can follow the passage below the stone circle and sometimes get told "You try to move that direction, but ...

Re: MicroMUD for the C64

I can't find the entrance to the tomb room (the room before you enter the room with the ghouls). Find the centre of the graveyard (location 163) and take note of what the voice says - PRISE TOMB. I'm in the process of tidying up a hint file ready to publish. Apart from accessing the Inner Sanctum I...

Re: Castle of Terror for the ZX Spectrum

I encountered and reported that problem many years ago: http://www.solutionarchive.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=228&hilit=castle+of+terror That the game was released for the Spectrum 48K there seems to be no doubt. World of Spectrum used to have scans of articles and tips about it published in Sp...

Castle of Terror for the ZX Spectrum

Does anyone own or know if Castle of Terror by Melbourne House was ever released for the ZX Spectrum? There's a .Z80 snapshot on World of Spectrum but it's a multiload text adventure and part 2 is missing.

None of the Melbourne collectors I know own or have ever seen a copy.

ZAP WEB with the wand. The Spider's Lair is still inaccessible though. I think it's like the rat tunnel, no way in.

I'm compiling a list of hints.

Re: MicroMUD for the C64

I took a closer look at the game. I don't like all the characters walking around taking the objects I need before I can enter a command.. It appears my emulator is a bit too fast on my pc. The text sometimes disappears faster than I can read it and also the game ends a lot sooner than after the 40 ...

Possibly it's a myth, an Easter egg or a feature they couldn't get working properly?
