Re: The Orion Quest c64

I managed to kill the zarp with the bottle :) (Ok I still have to find the location where I will find the bottle, but I cheated a bit) and I found a cube.

Re: The Orion Quest c64

I just found a screenshot on the internet showing one of the objects (the recorder) . So I guess I'm doing something wrong or my copy is not working correctly.

Re: The Orion Quest c64

What is particularly frustrating is that is will understand an input and then says it can't understand that very same input a few seconds later. Yes I did notice that on several occasions. Very frustrating, because you have to enter commands several times to see if they work. Thanks for the hint ab...

Re: The Orion Quest c64

I can only find a single (Italian!) review of the game... https://archive.org/details/Computer-Ga ... n+quest%22 My Italian is not very good :) but Google translate gives this result: Orion Quest is an adventure game, a game genre that is catching a lot in Italy, despite the difficulties that the E...

Re: The Orion Quest c64

Did you encounter the alien each game because I only found it the first time I played the game and since then it has gone for some reason? Being completely stuck and not able to find other objects I changed the code and just put the objects in a specific location in order to be able to try to solve ...

Re: The Orion Quest c64

If you MOVE ROCKS then you uncover a LASER. Thank you but yes that is the only thing I managed to discover so far. It seems the game is full of bugs. I took a quick look at he program code. For instance at the clearing you should be able to type GO BUILDING to enter the building, but it doesn't wor...

The Orion Quest c64

Has anyone tried to play the Orion Quest on the c64? I only managed to find a laser. One time I saw a Zarp at the oasis but it never happened again. I am also unable to enter the building at the clearing. Anyone any hints or wants to give it a try?

That's the spirit although a bit optimistic I guess :) .. on the other hand for the next two months all my usual activities have been cancelled so I might try to solve a game or two.

Re: Temple of terror going through the stone door at last

I also like to make maps of them, but it takes a lot of time and a lot of the maps I made are unfinished.

Re: Temple of terror going through the stone door at last

no, I just try to solve the puzzles. Doing the actual fighting , starting over after dying would take to much of my time. But even without the fighting they are still enjoyable.

Re: Temple of terror going through the stone door at last

Agreed, not all new releases are good. In addition, I found the old artwork much nicer than that of the new editions. But, as you say, not all old editions were good either. But when I'm on the train, I always like to read one. The new one is already the 10th edition since the original series ended....

I also still enjoy to play one of those books sometimes. A new one will be released in October. I have already ordered my copy :D

Re: Temple of terror going through the stone door at last

Thanks to the hint from Csabo I was able to finish the game. Thanks :thumb: It seems I was one letter short, but now I finely saw the end of the game.

Below file has been fixed to have an opened stone door.
