There appears to be an error in the BBC version, as trying to read the parchment just gets the response "I can't read that". I'm not sure if this prevents you completing the game.

I've corrected the READ PARCHMENT bug on But I notice that the CASA walkthrough fails in the Beeb version of the game at CLIMB TREE..?

Water the shoot, not the garden, in the BBC version. New solution posted.

In the Spectrum version and Jim Gerrie's unofficial MC10 port, you need to Search King (not Examine King) to find the rope.

Hermski (29-05-2021 17:48)

On the Spectrum version you can't examine post or signpost, nor using search. Tried both uppercase and lower case. just does not work. Any suggestions?

Hermski (30-05-2021 17:47)

Okay, whoever ported this to the speccy, AAARGGG. Instead of Examine, you need to use Search or sometimes Look. e.g, 'search king', 'look post'. You cant 'use lance', you need to 'lance post'. You can't 'spray skeleton', you need to 'blow skeleton'

I am now stuck on crossing the pit, as 'use ladder' does not work. I've tried many verbs but no good. Any suggestions? This is really odd.

Hermski (30-05-2021 18:29)

Okay, by reading the code, the correct verb for the ladder is 'Lay Ladder'

Very compact but crude adventure, relatively popular (in the sense of "known") in its day probably due to the ports. Most versions are buggy. Has a high density of puzzles for its size but it relies too much on guess-the-verb. Not really too playable.
