Perhaps as an experimental exercise (it wouldn't be the first time) into determining the robustness of their proprietary adventure development environment, the folk(s) at Intelligent-Digital here have adapted a 48k Spectrum version of the great grandpappy of text adventure games, Crowther's ADVENTURE, to their own unique .NET point-and-click interface.

The goals, puzzles, locations and objects remain much the same: the player still navigates a system of half-fantasy half-Kentucky caves in search of treasures with the aid of zany magical incantations. All the same, many puzzles (especially the mazes of twisty little passages) have been consciously streamlined out of this game's design, resulting in an overall easier game to match the intended friendlier interface.
