This is not really in Basic - only two very short loader routines are in that language. I'd guess the main code is in assembler.

I just checked it, but it is written in Basic. It may be compiled or you may not be able to use the LIST command, but the original code is definitely written in Basic.

If you make a HEXDUMP of the file HITCHIK on the disk you'll clearly see it.

Judging by the screenshot, this looks like a version of Bob Chappell's "The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy" game, and that was definitely written in BASIC.

It certainly has some (pretty blatant) similarities to the Supersoft game, in terms of objects and puzzles, but it is not the same game. The map is quite different.

It's definitely in BASIC. The solution on this very webpage tells you how to LIST the BASIC program. http://www.solutionarchive.com/file/id%2C2209/
