Synopsis

Plot

The Federation starship, USS Centipede, has barely managed to orbit the strange pink planet Pincus. You, Captain James T Quirk, have taken the shuttle craft 'Galapagos' to the surface to obtain dilithium crystals from the hostile natives. You are now ready to embark on your adventure.

Notes

This was published by Softalk Publishing as a BASIC type-in listing in Softline, vol. 1, no. 5, May 1982, pp. 10-13. It appeared in part 3 of the series 'Adventures in Adventuring', which explained how to write an adventure in BASIC. This part described how to navigate using N, S, E, W, U and D, hence this adventure doesn't do much more than that.

The game is referred to as 'A Voyage to the Planet Pincus' in the article, but 'Journey to the Planet Pincus' in the program listing, so the latter is considered to be the correct title.

The original program listing was for the Apple II.

Softline reader Stuart Pierce, details the modifications required to make an Atari 8-bit version in the September 1982 issue.

It was also ported to the Atari 8-bit by Brian Hall.

Like many of the other titles in Softline's Adventures in Adventuring series, the game was made available, already typed-in, on disk for Apple and Atari users; see advert.
