About the Story

Your mission is to recover the Golden Baton, a priceless artefact that holds within it a kind of life force that maintains the equilibrium between good and evil. Stolen from the Palace of King Ferrenuil, the kingdom is already beginning to feel the effects of drought and pestilence.
[--blurb from The Z-Files Catalogue]

Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


More or less your standard minimalist fantasy adventure with a two-word parser - the kind of thing where nearly every object is used exactly once - but with only one treasure to collect and a greater emphasis on monsters than most games of this type. I found one puzzle quite difficult, and the per-room help wasn't adequate for solving it.

Simple Fun, April 22, 2019
Played through with my 11yr old son. It was a fairly simple and short cave crawl. There was one time we had to have a hint but apart from that it was all fairly logical (which I like) not too much head scratching. There was some nice humour which made my son laugh out loud. All in all a good place for an 11yr old to start! (And a returning 40 something!!)

Played on Spectaculator ZX spectrum emmulator.
