Ported to Adventuron in The Beast of Torrack Moor - 30th Anniversary Edition, by Linda Doughty and Chris Ainsley and Andy Green

Editorial Reviews


"There is just so much to do and find out in this enchanting village, before you're ready to tackle the utter contrast of the damp, depressing moor where the Beast is rumoured to be lurking. The loquacious (LMLWD) characters don't just stay in the same location either - they wander around the place, adding even more realism to the totally engrossing plot.

If all this sounds a bit too creepy, the dark mood of the excellent scenario is marginally lightened by the odd bit of acidic humour, but not so much as to ruin the excellent, menacing aura. Surprisingly, hardly any use is made of the PAW's excellent graphics facilities, although a few ill-drawn pictures might have ruined the atmosphere, as well as wasting valuable memory. Nevertheless, the presentation is very neat with a legible, redefined character set and a Rainbird-style location title at the top of the screen, also displaying a clock - every action uses up a minute. This increases the difficulty of what is already a tough adventure, but the inclusion of a option aids progress."

"The Beast is a fictionalised version of the story of The Beast Of Exmoor, the wild cat that is said to be loose on Exmoor but which hasn't yet been caught or identified for certain.

In The Beast you're a reporter on a local paper, and one morning your mail's brightened up by a letter from a Miss Myrtle in Myrtle Cottage, Puddlecombe, which tells you about sightings of a large black animal on Torrack Moor outside the village, where a sheep has been killed. The vet says it's not the work of a fox or a dog..."
