African Adventure

This game was originally made for the good old Commodore 64, but about a decade later it was ported to PC DOS, which seems somewhat strange since by the year 1997 MS-DOS was already being pushed aside by other operating systems. Still Tony Baechler and Audrey De Lisle have done just that and thus gave us this nice little C64 classic.

This game can only handle two word commands, so don’t try to make sentences - it won’t understand it. Also, for some reason, you need to write all the commands with capital (BIG) letters.

The walkthrough included is meant for the C64 version, but the ported version is very faithful to the original, so you can use it regardless.

And now about the story…

This game will teach you the importance of reading, to increase your imagination. Before you’re off to bed, you get the book you wanted to read. The book isn’t in the very best condition, so a page falls out and you read the passage on it. Read it and let your thoughts drift.

Now you’re in the heart of Africa on your adventures and you need to find the treasure of King Salamon. Have you got what it takes?

The game is a text based adventure, so no graphics here. Also there aren’t any sounds (so don’t adjust the volume).

African Adventure it is fairly short and with very low replay ability, but it’s not bad granted you like the genre. However, there are much better text games out there so play this one if you’ve already completed all the others that we offer in the genre.
