Synopsis

Plot

You were walking through the woods and you came across the entrance of a cave, covered with brush.

People say that many years ago a pirate hid his treasure in these woods, but no one has ever found it. It may still be here, for all I know.

Notes

Although originally listed here with a 1979 date, according to a comment on Jason Dyer's blog, the adventure actually appeared first as a PET adventure as early as May 1978; it is reviewed in this Pet User's Group newsletter and is actually advertised in an even earlier issue, where it goes under the title Adventure.

The original Quest was made for seventh-graders at Peninsula School, Menlo Park, CA, who were doing a map making unit. The initial version did not include a scoring routine.

The PET 2001 version was referenced when the game appeared as a type-in in the July 1979 issue of Byte Magazine, pp.176-186. The magazine version was rewritten in a simpler dialect of BASIC to make it more compatible with other machines.

Also available in German and Italian.
