About the Story

You awaken with a headache and total amnesia. You don't know where you are or even what your name is. And what is this strange power you now possess? Every time you use it, you hear a loud noise! You would like to move around and find out more, but there's a small problem. Monsters are everywhere and they're trying to kill you! Welcome to Adventure Island...

This game combines elements of fantasy role-playing and text adventures. Discovering your identity is the mystery you must solve. Meanwhile, you're a fighter seeking treasure, exploring caves, and doing battle with multitudes of monsters.

This is a port of an ATARI 8-bit BASIC game published in the November 1984 issue of ANTIC magazine.

A Blast from the Past, August 12, 2018

This game has a big map, a very limited one-word command interpreter (commands like "get" and "drop" ask for the object referred to), not much of a plot, a few tricky puzzles, lots of tedious combat with monsters... on the other hand, the room descriptions are quite atmospheric if terse, and the puzzles (except maybe for the end-game one) are logical. There are some nasty red herrings.

I played this game in the 1980ies, typed it in from a magazine listing in fact, and loved it back then.
