Escape from S.S.A.D.B.

About the Story

In Escape from SSADB you are a government agent captured by the North Koreans and taken to a secret base hidden somewhere in the United States. While you are there you learn of Kim Jong Unís plans to fire a nuclear missile from inside the US and make it look like an inside job, thus prompting a Russian counter attack. You must save the US from nuclear attack by getting out of your cell, finding proof about the missiles and escape the Top-Secret base. If you succeed you will be a national hero; if you fail the world is doomed.
Now take your trusty brick and newspaper (you'll see in the game) in hand and venture forth in to the realm of spies and agents.

David Meny's Secret Science and Detention Base, March 17, 2014

Escape from SSADB is a text adventure in the tradition of the great adventures of Scott Adams. This program isn't as complicated as an Infocom product--It only uses two word commands like GET KEY or HIT COMPUTER.

This was apparently David Meny's first adventure game written in Basic. It was very enjoyable and challenging to play. The Basic program listing provides much insight in the structure of adventure program writing. He apparently also made other adventures such as PIRATE TREASURE, which is supposed to take place on a pirate ship and a desert island.

The version I played for the TRS-80 MC-10 has been updated for the 2000s. Kim Jun Un and the North Koreans are the enemies and not the Soviets as in the original for the TRS-80 Model 1/3.
