You have been kidnapped! You awaken on the ninth floor of a strange building to find that your kidnapper has left you unattended. You must try to escape from the building one floor at a time. Each floor is independent of the others. You cannot carry items from one floor to another and you cannot return to a previous floor. Everything you need to escape from a given floor can be found on that floor! This makes you feel like you're playing nine mini-Adventures rather than one big Adventure.

Kidnapped was originally written for the TRS-80. The Atari version did not appear until some months later. The puzzles and storyline are fairly simple and this leads me to believe that it may have been one of Peter Kirsch's early attempts at an Adventure. He later became a prolific Adventure writer and was responsible for many of the excellent SoftSide 'Adventure of the Month' series. These later Adventures show much greater depth and originality. Nevertheless, Kidnapped is a lot of fun and is ideal for beginners.
