A very good, old game based on Chinese mythology, June 5, 2017

This game came out the same year as Curses!, back before Inform was a thing. It's one of the very few games on ifdb written in adsys, and doesn't support undo.

You start the game near a fountain hub with paths leading in every direction. There are six dragons that you interact with to gain six coins.

Many of the puzzles are unfair in a sense, and the game feels like it could be polished more. But it's long and complex, and has a really likable fire iguana helper. The hints file on IFDB is annoying, but I was able to finish the game using it, after about 447 moves.
