4-character split screen BBC adventure?

Postby stevenjameshodgson » Thu May 19, 2016 10:14 pm

Hi. Long time reader, first time poster. And co-author of this piece of nonsense : http://solutionarchive.com/game/id%2C4684/A.R.V..html

Does anyone remember a text adventure for the BBC, could've had an educational angle to it, that ran in split-screen in (IIRC) Mode 7?

You could switch between the four characters, the other characters would just stay where they were doing nothing. I think it was set in and around a country house.

Rubbish description, sorry. But am I mad thinking it existed? Would love to play it again.

Welcome to Stardot!

Possibly you're thinking of Spooky Manor?

Yes! That's it - thanks.

Now I know what I'm looking for, I can look for it! :)

Assuming it's the same one, you don't need to look far - Stardot's own game restoration man-machine in the shape of Michael Brown has done the work for you.....

Well, I finished the game! It seemed larger when I was a kid!
