About the Story

It's 1987, and Barry Basic is keen to reach a whole new fanbase by porting his BBC Micro computer game to the ZX Spectrum. However, he needs to convert his code first!

As Barry, you need to find everything that will help you port your game and make a new name for yourself among Spectrum fans.

This mini-adventure was designed in preparation for the Adventuron Next Adventure Jam 2020, in order to test the procedure for making an Adventuron game Spectrum-compatible.

It's a tech demo, July 26, 2020

The game isn't really meant to be played; it's a sample game intended to demonstrate the Adventuron -> Spectrum converter. There's a YouTube video that explain the process.
