This is probably one of the easiest of Conrad Button's games, the story of how you were CASTAWAY on a deserted Pacific island and returned with ten treasures. This is a game from the dawn of shareware text adventures, with only a 40-character width DOS screen and the internal speakers to work with. It's gonna be a bit rustic. And calling it a "story" is generous. But Castaway is a good choice if you want to learn how things function in a ButtonWare game. Which I did.

You're stranded on a tropical island, and must find a way to return to civilization with as many treasures as possible. A farily primitive game: two-word parser, runs in 40-column mode only. One of Button's easier adventures - the author labels it "Introductory".
