Nice to play on C64 emulator, January 27, 2023

In this game you are going to steal gold from an alchemist. This is a fun little game which experienced players can probably beat in less than an hour. It was written with PunyInform so I decided to play it with a C64-emulator (VICE) using the Ozmoo interpreter.

There were responses to most commands and the parser was nudging me in the right direction if I should rephrase a command.

Nice writing (not too brief, not too verbose) and a nice setting gives a fine atmosphere.

Cruelty rating: Tough
The game can become unwinnable it seems but you are more or less told when it happens so you can load an earlier save.

For experienced players this is an easy game. The map you find in the game was quite original, whereas most of the other puzzles were more standard.

A short but entertaining game, though it is quite easy. And everything worked well with the Ozmoo interpreter including the ASCII-map.
