Synopsis

Notes

Originally written in 1980 for the Commodore PET.

As evidenced in user-group publications such as The Torpet and Midnight Software Gazette, John's trilogy of adventures were officially distributed on ATUG disks through their software exchange library.

The C64 versions are much later, such as the (presumably unlicensed) 1985 version by Keypunch version. Gamerbase64 lists at least four different C64 versions in their database.

(According to the Renga in Blue blog, at least one of the C64 versions is bugged, so playing the PET version is recommended)

An unofficial port was made in 1988 for Plus4; see here.

A classic treasure hunt adventure game... But a lot of tributes to Zork 1 and the tales of the 1001 nights. Lots of humor and indeed, the best is to play with the original version for the Commodore PET.
