Area 51

About the Story

Calling all classic IF BASIC game players!

I have created a new 10 Line BASIC text adventure for the TRS-80 MC-10 Computer. It is called "AREA51" and can be found in the 4K directory of the JimG directory of the Cassette directory in the Virtual MC-10 Emulator which can be downloaded here:


Just run VMC10.exe and then type CLOAD and hit <Enter>. Then find the AREA51.C10 file under the "play cassette" option of the File menu. Then type RUN and be prepared for a surprisingly complex and challenging adventure for a 10 line BASIC program. Well, at least I hope so. Any feedback welcome and special kudos for anyone who can post the walk-through here. And remember no peeking at the source code;)

The program is for a 10-liner BASIC game contest, info can be found here:
