Advent X-5 (Advent_X-5.txt)

Advent X-5 -- J.D. Casten -- Antic Computing, 1984

By Dale Dobson, www.gamingafter40.com

Trapped on the barren world Klybex-7, the player must gather equipment and make use of a nearby
escape shuttle.  This is a fairly simple adventure, with just a handful of substantial puzzles, and
it's not hard to finish within the "time limit" once you've mapped out the 
spaceship.  It's well-designed, with clear objectives that rarely leave the player foundering
over what to do next; the biggest challenge is the tight five-item inventory limit.
