Description

As with most Melbourne House adventures, Terrormolinos has a real-world setting. You play a family man taking his wife and kids on a holiday they will never forget, for all the wrong reasons. Avoid the bulls and sharks, take care to avoid heatstroke, and make sure your family doesn't run off.

Getting there and simply surviving all the hazards the brochure 'forgot' to mention is a challenge in itself, but you must also take 10 holiday snaps to prove what you got up to.

The game is structured similarly to a real holiday. There are day trips to go on, which provide extra photo opportunities. A few Spanish phrases such as 'QUE QUIRE USTED' ('what do you want?') and 'UNA HABITACION' ('a room') are included; the manual details these. The parser is primarily VERB NOUN.

Trivia

The game's title is a pun on the name of the Spanish city Torremolinos.

According to Wikipedia, Terrormolinos was "was written with a modified version of The Quill". Other sources describe these modifications as having been so appealing that its tweaked version of the Quill engine was licensed on at least two other occasions, for AdventureSoft's Temple of Terror and the C64 tape version of the Questprobe Fantastic Four game.
