Synopsis

Plot

Dr Livingston has been exploring in darkest Africa, but no message has been received from him for quite a while. He is presumed to be lost or captured by natives and it is your job to rescue him.

Dr Livingston's rescue has consumed your thoughts for weeks. You have gathered books and maps of the area where he was last seen and are ready to set out on your mission. Exhausted from your research, you are now preparing for sleep.

Your African adventure is just a dream away...

It was ported to the Apple II by Carl Mueller and published as a disk bonus with SoftSide, issue 30, vol. 5, no. 9, June 1982, instructions pp. 54-55.

An unofficial port exists for the Atari 400/800/XL/XE.

Unofficial ports exist for the Commodore PET and Commodore 64, but these are titled African Adventure and are considerably modified from the original with extra objects, slightly different puzzles and different scoring.
