Adventure Soft / Scott Adams recommendations please

Postby fuzzel » Tue Jan 16, 2018 7:09 pm

I think I'll have a crack at one of the Scott Adams adventures when I've finally completed Programmer's Revenge (could be some time though).
Can anyone recommend one ? Pendragon in Micro User Apr-88 said that Strange Odyssey is superb so that's definitely on the shortlist.

I think "The Count" is generally regarded a being his best.
Maybe start with Pirate adventure or voodoo castle to get you in the zone, instead of starting with the best one?

I think I'll skip Pirate Adventure, according to Pendragon in Micro User Apr-88 it only has 20 odd locations and two treasures, in fact it sounds like the basis for an adventurers' 100m race to see who can complete an adventure from scratch in the shortest time (so actually I think I will play it).
On your marks....

Yep. It's definitely the easiest by far. It may be good for getting a feel of the syntax he likes to use though...
