Editorial Reviews

SynTax
Jewels of Darkness
Taking the original Adventure as a basis, they not only wrote a superb conversion, they also added a completely new end-game, with an extra 70 locations.

A Level 9 reworking of Adventure with an expanded endgame, July 1, 2017
by MathBrush
Related reviews: more than 10 hours
This game is a reworking of Adventure, and was released commercially by Level 9.

It's generally similar to Adventure, with the dragon puzzle made easier, but it has a much bigger endgame where you have to save hundreds of elves (but your actions save about a hundred at a time).

It has graphics that add a lot to the game, even though they are nowhere near as good as Magnetic Scrolls.

Gargoyle plays level 9 games, so if you want to try this out, it may be a fun way to play the original Adventure game.
