SoftSide Adventure of the Month #3
Treasure Island Adventure
By Pete Tyjewski
Published by SoftSide Publications, August 1981
For Atari 400/800/XL/XE (same or very similar for Apple II and TRS-80)

Solution by Garry Francis
----------------------------------------
This is a minimal solution. You'll need to EXAMINE, READ or LOOK at lots of things for this
solution to make sense. Scores are shown in brackets as A/B, where A = points awarded, B =
cumulative points awarded.

Your aim is to achieve a score of 258 points calculated as follows:
   64 points for visiting every scorable room, i.e. 1 point per room
   54 points for collecting 27 objects, i.e. 2 points per object
   30 points for having treasure chest stolen by pirate
   20 points for returning ming vase (in one piece)
   20 points for returning black anvil
   20 points for returning golden crown
   50 points for returning treasure chest
  ---
  258 points total

You start with 3 points, 1 for room visited, 2 for object already in vault.

Inventory is limited to 12 items when moving. Most of the game is underground, so you need to carry
the lamp with you at all times. It goes out without warning after 70 moves, so you also need to
carry the keg of whale oil to refill it and the box of matches to relight it, effectively limiting
you to 9 additional items per trip. The anvil is equivalent to 9 items, so it must be recovered on
its own trip. The best you can do is 4 trips. I did all the puzzley bits on the first two trips and
mopped up on the last two trips.
