Adventure of the Stone by Wilsonsoft

Postby fuzzel » Fri Jan 27, 2017 8:41 pm

Has anyone got a copy of Adventure of the Stone by Wilsonsoft?
It's mentioned in Pendragon's column in Electron User issue Dec86.
Another one for the Lost and Found ?

I've just found Wilsonsoft's Centipede game, not a bad attempt and there's a great options screen where you can adjust the various game elements
eg speed of spider, height of spider and you can disable various nasties.
I now have high hopes for their adventure....

If Pendragon is correct in ascribing Adventure Of The Stone to Potter Programs, as he does here and here, then can we be sure that it's not just another name for Philosopher's Stone, also released by Potter Programs but written by Graham Barlow?

(I admit that that doesn't explain the "Wilson" part of "Wilsonsoft" though!)

Any chance of uploading the Wilsonsoft Centipede?
It isn't this is it? http://www.bbcmicro.co.uk/game.php?id=650

Published in Your computer but written by J.R. Wilson.
Lee.

p.s. Lurkio, in that last link to the Potter Programs, Pendragon mentions both Philosopher's Stone AND Adventure of the Stone.....

I know. I get the impression that he might have never actually seen a copy of the latter. But I could be wrong.

It's the one in the archive on this site (in disk images: Centipede-Wilsonsoft), also the one in your picture. Not a bad game.
There must be lots of centipede variants out there, I wonder which is the best?
