Synopsis

Plot

The world's only remaining copy of Adventure is reputed to be stored on an ancient mainframe in an old factory building. You must explore the building and make a copy of this valuable artifact.

During the endgame, you must learn how to use the mainframe in order to copy the program. You can even ask the computer to RUN ADVENTURE. So not only is there a computer within the computer, there is an adventure within the adventure! Well, sort of...

Notes

This was published as a sample adventure in COMPUTE!'s Guide to Adventure Games, Chapter 11, 'Tower of Mystery: A Simple Adventure Program', pp. 159-181. The main program is written in Microsoft BASIC and should run on a wide range of computers. Extra modifications are given for Atari BASIC and TI BASIC. The Atari BASIC version is very buggy, so it is recommended that you use the fixed game on the autobooting disk image provided in the resources.

The Atari 400/800 XL version has a bug, which the fix can be found at: http://manillismo.blogspot.com/2012/04/tower-of-mystery-fix.html

Interesting to see my fixed version uploaded for someone else to CASA.

According to Garry, his fixed version is different from yours and includes autobooting. So the credit seems to be right.
