Synopsis

Plot

The Sinclive Diamond has been stolen from the Jewel Room of Spectraisia's Capital, Microdrivia. It must be restored in as short a time as possible, before the public begin to doubt its existence, but where in this city of death and intrigue is the stolen Sinclive Diamond?

Notes

Although Diamond Trial has previously been listed as the very first commercial adventure written with The Quill (Tim Gilberts was one of the founders of Gilsoft, publishers of The Quill) the game pre-dates that system and was written by Tim using an assembler and Graeme Yeandle's raw database/interpreter. That database/interpreter would later form the basis of The Quill.

There was an official C64 release of this game, created using the C64 Quill.

The Atari version may be an unofficial conversion.

OK early game from Gilsoft. Despite the Sinclair User review (issue 24, p44) stating it can "keep the player involved in the game for a long time", this is a beginner's adventure which can be sorted quickly.
