Synopsis

Plot

The aim is to explore an Incan temple in order to find golden treasures. There are eight treasures and only six items can be carried in the inventory, so the correct treasures must be collected in order to leave the temple with the maximum score.

Notes

Although usually not credited as such, Charles Cecil mentioned Richard Turner as co-author.

The publication history of this game is fairly complex...

It was originally released for ZX80 and ZX81 by Artic as Adventure B in 1981, and was ported to the ZX Spectrum. Artic later used the subtitle Inca Curse as the main title of the game. The game was also released in Sinclair-branded packaging for the ZX81 and ZX Spectrum.

The original 1981 ZX81 version of this game was subtitled Inca Treasure rather than Inca Curse.

The Amstrad CPC version was ported by Dollarsoft and published by Paxman Promotions. The C64 version was initially published in a "basic" version and lated ported and the text expanded by A.W.J. Adam using The Quill.

The Quill'ed C64 version was later published in the U.S. by Real Software as The Temple Curse, as part of the Nick Hardy Adventures.

A C64 version of this game exists with the title Doomtunnel by "Ivysoft" but appears to be merely a cracked version of the original Artic release, with the title screen changed.
