Well, here we are again, just in time to wish everybody a merry Christmas and happy New Year, hopefully with many great adventuring sessions in front of the computer in 2013!
Thanks to all contributors, and to all you users out there who are keeping this site alive.

A special mention this time around to all people involved in putting the final nails in the coffin of Holy Horrors. A lot of people on our forum have struggled with this Beeb title for years, and finally Alex took a look at the game code and provided the steps needed to get us across the finishing line. Let's see what 2013 has in store for us.

Random Game

Eureka!


Plot

Designed by Fighting Fantasy author Ian Livingstone, Eureka! sees you travelling through five time periods to locate the pieces of the so-called Temporal Talisman. If you fail, the Moon will disintegrate and destroy life on Earth in the process!

The time periods are:

  • Prehistoric Europe
  • Roman Italy
  • Arthurian Britain
  • WW2 Germany
  • Modern Caribbean (this part only being accessible after solving parts 1-4)

Notes

All parts are preceded by a very simple, Pacman-esque arcade game. This can be used to earn further energy points for the adventure games. However, all games can be solved with the initial number of energy points.

At the time of release, a prize of £25,000 was offered to the first to solve all five parts and figure out a secret phone number. The lucky winner was 15-year old schoolboy Matthew Woodley, who later revealed the fairly complex method of figuring out the phone number.

A sequel was planned but never materialized.

Also available in French and German.
