This text adventure game (interactive fiction) was originally written by Mark Eaton and Barrie Eaton on the Amstrad back in 1988.

YOUR OBJECTIVE: Others have gone mad in seeking the lost pirates treasure alleged to be hidden deep within the catacombs. Will you be the one to find it?

This game is easier in skill level when compared to ‘Mystery of the Dark Manor’. As such it can be a good first text adventure game for those new in this genre.

This Android edition tries hard to keep the original quality of that game, but at the same time provide features available from Android.

Hyperlink assist provides smart context menus as an alternative to using the keyboard.

A graphical inventory system so that you can see and tap what you are carrying.

As such there are 2 styles of play:
1. Play the game just by tapping
2. Play with the more retro style of using the keyboard

An automap will track your location progress. Can easily view by tapping the map icon. Landscape mode will show a minature version of the automap.

Can use gestures. Use arrowheads to move north or south, and use a swipe to move east or west.

Tap on an image to ‘look’ at your current location.
Tap on the descriptive text to close the keyboard if open.

Speech input is available to issue commands.

Can also have the text read aloud.

Font size can also be adjusted based on small, medium or large.

Also extensively designed for the visually impaired. Have fully tested with Talkback using Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) from start to end with my eyes shut! Type “blind” in game to learn more.

If you like this game then please rate.

Analytics is used to help improve this game. This sends anonymous data about game usage and how far people have progressed to Google servers.

If you can please leave analytics turned on. I’m trying hard to avoid capturing simply words, but more thoughts and intentions.

This takes a lot of work but is worth it!



As such 2 permissions are needed:
1. Internet
2. AccessNetworkState

If you encounter an issue please email me first. Can do so from the main menu –> Email Developer. That way I can address the issue.
