I only tried this because it was 16K and the one of the first adventures in World of Spectrum.
I was very disappointed to find I could use 2 rooms and the desert.
I came onto CASA and realised the solution was mapping the desert and off I went again. It took a while with very little to drop, but I got there in the end.
Following that it was a simple but fun few hours solving the rest.
It's a very early Spectrum adventure so don't expect much but it was interesting enough if you can look past the weak vocab.
It's fun to read the basic at the end!




Parser/Vocabulary (Rating: 2/10)

Very weak vocabulary. No get or use or open!

Atmosphere (Rating: 5/10)

A few fun bits with devils and dragons.

Cruelty (Rating: Tough)

Only because it takes a while to work out the desert.

Puzzles (Rating: 4/10)

Most puzzles are quite obvious, but fun for an ancient 16K early foray into adventuring.

Overall (Rating: 5/10)

Worth a go just to see how adventures began. Maybe this was a practice run for The Hobbit!
