One of my favorite of the first graphic/text adventure hybrids (with a picture of each location on the top 2/3rds of the screen, with the text description below), this was made by Michael Crichton, when he had his own software company. Yes, the Michael Crichton, whose movie fare includes Jurassic Park and Westworld, and whose TV creations include E.R. You can imagine how fun his software story was, as a sort of "Raiders of the Lost Ark," set deep in the Amazon. Amusing little additions included Paco, the talking parrot sidekick, who often helped you out of trouble faster than Lassie ever could. So fun was this game --for me, anyway-- it's on Techtite's list of Top 50 Multimedia Classics!
