Juleadventurespil type-in from 'Hjemmedata'

#1 Post by Garry » Tue Jan 26, 2021 3:26 pm

Can someone check the entry for Juleadventurespil at https://solutionarchive.com/game/id%2C7 ... espil.html. According to the database, it's a Danish game that appeared as a type-in listing in 'Hjemmedata' December 1983. However, I just downloaded 'Hjemmedata' December 1983 and there is no sign of this game. The magazine appears to be Norwegian, not Danish. Is the database right and there is another magazine with the same name or is the database wrong?

The author's other entry in the database is Danish, so I think the language will be correct.

There appears to also have been a short-lived (six issue) Danish publication with the same title as the Norwegian magazine, given it's entry in the Royal Danish Library archives...

...I presume that's the magazine referenced in the entry.

I don't know of the location of any scans of that magazine, though.

There's a reference to that short-lived Danish magazine in this article...
https://www.gamingalexandria.com/wp/202 ... le-gaming/
The Color Genie’s library was slim in Denmark, and with so little at Kraft’s hand, he began to experiment. With his previous knowledge in the arcades and in BASIC, Kraft began designing a slot machine game in less than 100 lines of code within the span of 6 months. Under the title of Computer Jackpot, the game was published and featured on the front page in the November 1983 issue of HjemmeData: a short-lived computer magazine that only lasted six issues.

As a native Danish speaker, I can confirm that both magazine and game are in Danish. But if I were to introduce a few spelling errors, it might as well be in Norwegian :) (in writing, to two languages are quite reminiscent)
