About the StoryThis game was originally published in Softline magazine in January 1983. It was written in Atari Basic, with instructions provided to port the game from Atari Basic to Applesoft Basic, which I've dutifully applied.
I've preserved this game for historical interest. It's the very first text adventure game that I can remember playing. It's got a dancing dragon, a McRib sandwich, a snarky dinosaur, and a magic spring.

by Dan FabulichI went to the trouble of typing in this game from an archived copy of Softline magazine because I had fond memories of playing this game with my dad.
The game itself is playable, and has some cute bits. The centerpiece puzzle with the dragon has adequate clues, I think, and the magic spring puzzle may catch some players pleasantly by surprise.

All you can do is eat or wait. There are two endings. There are no good endings. Based on a random idea in a Twitter conversation. https://twitter.com/howtophil/status/1250219872019197954 I joked I was making it... then I made it.
