Synopsis

Plot

The evil General Doom and his Roche Soldiers are ready to launch an attack against the Forces of Freedom, led by Princess Leya. Enroute to a secret command center on the planet Harris 7, Princess Leya's ship was attacked by Doom. She is now being held prisoner on one of his battle cruisers. It is a sorry day indeed!

The capture holds extra prizes for Doom and his men: onboard Princess Leya's ship is the entire treasury of her Freedom Fighting Force in a chest containing Melidium Crystals, the currency used in this galaxy. The Princess is also wearing a necklace made of shinestones. Encoded in one of the stones is the location and strength of her Freedom Fighting Force. Hopefully, Doom has not yet discovered the secret of the necklace.

Notes

This was the first text adventure to be published in a magazine: the May 1979 issues of SoftSide. It was also printed in The Captain 80 Book of BASIC Adventures and the June 1982 issue of Computer and Video Games.

It seems to be heavily based on Star Wars.

It has been ported to the Sharp MZ-80A (called Dog Star Adventure and Dog Star 2) and the Commodore PET.
