Synopsis

Plot

Apparently good old Hippocrates found a cure against cancer. He decided to write it down on a pair of tablets and then, for reasons unknown, hide them in a magical forest where they were forgotten.
It is your task to locate the tablets.

Notes

Originally a game from 1983 for a ZX81 with 16K, which was released as part of the Fawkes Computing Gametape 1.

The Aquarius version is from 1984. The C16/Plus 4 version dates from 1985, according to the inlay.

In later versions of the game control was via normal input or by using a number of pre-defined keys. This allowed the game to run on the Mattel Aquarius.

Jim Gerrie has produced a version of the game for MC-10; available here.

Played on both ZX81 and Aquarius; the latter version differs in some details. The map is slightly different and some objects change (slate/book, flint/match, knife/scythe). Looks like the game was revised at some point, but the changes are not really material.
