Yeah, that's an interesting choice. Still, you could frig it if you worked out the code.

Great movie that too!
I'd prefer more HP Lovecraft games myself. Much creepier that EAP in my eyes.

On the last level you basically need at least 4 of the baddies to be in the central area to have a chance. Also, the bonus key never appears in the area you can reach, so you can't even r...

Let me see, I think I'll remove that M=M-1 if that's OK with you Jeff. :wink:

It certainly has worked fine on the C64 with everything I bought up until about 2 or 3 years ago when they stopped selling them in my town. :evil:

I've got one here somewhere, and I'd be surprised if there's more than a handful within 100 miles. I have the RF converter thing 8) but I don't have a power adapter for it :cry: .

The "Write Your Own Fantasy Games for Your Microcomputer" apparently has a VIC20 version, though I can only find the C64 one available at GB64.
