About the Story

Wander through an enchanted realm and try to uncover the 13 lost treasures. There are wild animals and magical beings to reckon with as well as many other perils and mysteries.

WARNING! The Z-Code conversion of this game is certifiably buggy.

The TRS-80 MC-10 uses a unique multiple file method to allow it to be squeezed into a 16K machine. After loading and running the initial program (ADVENT1.C10) you will be prompted to load an additional cassette file (ADVENT2.C10).

Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


A game of historical significance: originally written in TRS-80 BASIC, this was the first adventure game to be widely available on microcomputers. It's a minimalist treasure hunt set in and around a cave - an imitation of Colossal Cave, only without the prose. Good sense of freedom, somewhat eccentric design, two-word parser (except the Inform port), magic words, a maze, and a limited light source.

-- Carl Muckenhoupt

Ancient History!, April 5, 2008
by Grunion Guy (Portland)
I can credit this game with my love of text adventure games. I played it when I was quite young on my Vic-20. And even though the game is sparsely detailed with a frustrating parser compared to today's games, it was quite exciting and kept me coming back to try and solve its unfair puzzles. Not really much to look at now, it might be worth checking out.

(Spoiler - click to show)The bear puzzle. Am I the only one who, even at the young age I was, solved it by becoming completely frustrated with the bear and typing screw bear? The old parser only read the first three letters of every word and the intended solution was, apparently, scream bear. So imagine my surprise when I typed Screw Bear and the response was 'The bear is so startled it falls off the ledge.' Awesome. I think it's the only game I ever had to resort to bestiality to solve a problem. Thanks Scott Adams!

The one that got me started., April 14, 2017
I can remember when I first sat behind my C64, I was young and hooked on this game. Though it hasn't aged that well I can still sit down and play this for hours at end. If you haven't played this piece of history I say you should. It's a nice look back to what the past was like.
