War of the Worlds: Chapter One - The Landing

Moby ID: 182090


War of the Worlds: Chapter One - The Landing is a graphical menu-based adventure game for the TRS-80 CoCo.

You are an astrophysicist from the University of Washington, Seattle. You've been called to the mountains to the east to investigate a strange meteor, which has crashed near the town of Taima. Flying from Boeing Field, your small plane lands in a clearing south of the crash site.

All commands are via menu structure, including the four compass directions and a variety of activities. The player must avoid being killed by the alien invasion, and with the help of a local priest, try to make peace between the aliens and the people of Earth.
