    COMPREHEND™ INTERACTIVE NOVELS

    Enter a whole new world inside your computer as you become the main character in a COMPREHEND interactive novel! Your computer describes where you are, objects of that location, and possible exits. You control the outcome of the story by typing in all actions, such as "Go North and climb the tree', or "Take the shovel and inspect it carefully'. Your computer shows you the results of all actions. Explore and interact with the unknown world inside your computer to unravel the plot ... but be careful, or your novel may have an undesirable ending!
    COMPREHEND is the program that allows you to communicate with your computer using full sentences in plain English. The Graphics Magician® program makes it possible to put hundreds of detailed illustrations into each novel. Together, they have created a brand new world inside your computer.

Back of Cardboard Folder - Apple II (US):
    In an adventure game you are put in a fictitious world inside the computer. The computer shows you where you are, what you see, and where you can go. You travel around and do things by giving the computer two word commands, a verb and a noun, such as 'Go North', 'Look Tree', 'Take Brick', and so on. The computer then shows you the result of your action and waits for your next instruction. The object of an adventure game is to accomplish something in particular through exploring the world around you, perhaps using some of the objects you find, and solving puzzles. This ''something' in Transylvania is to rescue a damsel in distress . . . but first you must find her.
