Re: Unfinished Text Adventures

Quest for the Holy Grail walkthrough uploaded to CASA.

I'm now stuck in Sticky Fingers (had to be said!) but will persevere. I think I need a list of commands as there are one or two strange objects
which might require unusual actions...

Re: Unfinished Text Adventures

Sticky Fingers by Eclipse and Jeff Tullin. Take a bow Jeff, great little game, a wacky Yorkshire version of CATCF. Not easy either !

How on earth was this game found ? I've never heard of them.

Re: Unfinished Text Adventures

I've Just finished Quest for the Holy Grail. I liked the colour coded text for the different areas of the game. It wasn't a tricky game once I worked out how to deal with the coloured knights (whose side are you supposed to be on anyway?). I was stuck for a while until I realised the candles in the ...

Re: Unfinished Text Adventures

Hi Iamaran, many thanks for the suggestions. I've just downloaded and ran each of the four games before deciding which to play. Epic's Holy Grail has a very professional feel to it with a high quality introduction and decent amounts of location text so I think I'll start with that one. Sticky Finger...

Re: Unfinished Text Adventures

Five Spheres of Goliath solved and walkthrough uploaded to CASA (< 24 hours, although I did play it as a kid). A fun little game this one, with sound effects (although they slow the game down and become tediously repetitive in the shuttle car and the lift). One sound effect reminded me of Dare Devil...

Re: Unfinished Text Adventures

After Locks of Luck, Anadon was a walk in the park !

Think I'll do Five Spheres of Goliath next.

I think I'm just putting off playing through LOL again and completing the walkthrough.

Re: Unfinished Text Adventures

Anyone got any suggestions as to what I should play next ?

Level 9, Robico, Magus, Topologika and Acornsoft games are out as I've done them (except Acheton, I think I'll retire before I play that one).

I'd prefer to play a game that has no solution posted online.

Another breakthrough! I now have the wave, the last part of King Golly's missing barnet, but surprise, surprise, I can't take them all back to his chambers. There's a teleporter but you can only carry the reddy teddy (more like ruddy teddy) with you, everything else gets dropped. Oh well, once more ...

Unfinished Text Adventures

Following on from Lurkio' and I's attempts to complete Magus' What's Eyeores (solved) and Locks of Luck (getting there..), I wondered if there were any text adventures for the beeb for which there are no solutions posted on the web. By unfinished I mean games where the solution doesn't give a maximu...

Re: What's Eyeore's by Magus

Well done and thanks! You got there first. But I'm sure I tried the tongs because they were the obvious thing from the list of objects for nail removal. When it didn't work I assumed none of the treasures had any use except as a treasure (the devious so and sos). So never make assumptions when playi...

I've just checked my notes and I've got about 80% of the walkthrough completed, up to the point in part 3 where I was stuck on a couple of puzzles. I'll send you that if you like. ...

Re: What's Eyeore's by Magus

Hi Lurkio, I'm pretty sure that my method reveals all of the messages in the game. If you look at some of the gibberish text you see that it's repeated so I'm assuming it has some other purpose. A couple of things to consider though, can you think of any messages you've seen in the game that aren't ...

Re: What's Eyeore's by Magus

To summarise, the tin man wanders around with a nail stuck in his jaw. By carrying the can of "IRN BRU" you can get him to follow you. You take him to the river where he gets stuck to a magnetic rock and now can't move his arms so you can reach for the nail. Unfortunately, you can't get a ...

Re: What's Eyeore's by Magus

One that stood out for me was "Pop! It's free!". This must be the message displayed on removal of the nail. Shame there's no clue as to how it's done.

I'll summarise the Tin Man's part in the game to date shortly, hopefully it might help.
