Re: Rainbow Adventure / Jorge Mir

You won't find it listed for the TRS-80, because it's a CoCo game. ( The Rainbow was a CoCo magazine.) It probably runs on a TRS-80, as their BASICs are almost identical, except for the addition of graphics and sound commands on the CoCo. I haven't tried it and I don't know which TRS-80 model it wou...

Re: There are sufficient new games in the queue...

Great work guys. There's easily 10,000 games out there. All we need is the time and energy to get them all entered...and get all 10,000 with maps, solutions and screen grabs!

Re: Does 'De Tijdmachine' exist for Spectrum ZX?

Hi. Could anyone direct me to the BBC BASIC version of this game, please? I can't seem to find it online anywhere. I've emailed you what I have. Unfortunately, I don't remember where I got it. If it's hard to find, maybe we could add it to CASA as a fixed game? Now that Jim Gerrie has done an Engli...

Re: Lost Apple II commercial text adventure game

SoftSide adventures sent. 'Curse of the Sasquatch' is a machine language game for the TRS-80. I haven't heard of 'Search for the Sasquatch', so I can't help with that one. The only Greg Hassett game that I've come across for the Apple II is 'Journey to the Center of the Earth', but this may have bee...

Re: Lost Apple II commercial text adventure game

Most of these games are not able to downloaded to play in either Applewin or an Atari emulator (nor TRS-80). . . . If you have those Softside games, why don't you try to get them imaged. And if they already are, can they be downloaded? I searched for them, but to no avail. I was talking about emula...

Re: Lost Apple II commercial text adventure game

From my perspective, the Softside disk adventures are the only other remaining Apple II text adventures still MIA (not available on other computer platforms). This is possibly a little off-topic, but if you are referring to the SoftSide Adventure of the Month series, these are all available. I've c...

Re: Primal Adventure... 1980?

I had this as being published by Karel Software, but no publication date. Not sure where I got the info, though.

Re: Lost Apple II commercial text adventure game

The C64 version is in CBM 64 programs - Volume 1, Duckworth Home Computing, 1984, pp. 169–189. It is credited to Mark Capella, but I don't know whether he actually ported it.

Re: Lost Apple II commercial text adventure game

You're welcome to add any new info. I'm not concerned about credits. This is just a hunch, but I reckon the C64 version probably came from the PET version, as the PET was around when the Apple II was around. We're talking 1980. The C64 came much later. The Nibble magazines on CD cost money. I might ...

Re: Lost Apple II commercial text adventure game

'Will 'o the Wisp' was published in Nibble , vol. 1, no. 8, December 1980, pp. ?–? and reprinted in Nibble Express , vol. 1, pp. 151–158. It was ported to the TI-99/4A by Barry T Boland and to the TRS-80 by an unknown author. Does anyone know where I can get copies of Nibble so that I can check the ...

Re: Lost Apple II commercial text adventure game

This is great information. It sounds like you've already done a thorough search, so it's unlikely to be found unless someone on one of the Apple forums has a copy.
