New Text Adventure - Deer Creek

Post by 8BitAG » Mon Aug 12, 2019 10:25 pm

I'm sure you're all bored of them by now :D but here is another new text adventure...

Deer Creek
...downloadable from...
http://8bitag.com/games/deer-creek.html (scroll down for the ZX Spectrum downloads)

Written as a browser-based game using the excellent, quick & easy-to-use Adventuron Classroom tool, it's been converted to the ZX Spectrum using the companion A2P (Adventuron 2 PAW) converter. (Plus some extra PAW coding & tidying up)

It's an educational text adventure, designed as both an easy, introduction to the genre and also as a tool to help teach primary children (aged 9+) about homophones & puns.

You only need a few simple verbs to play it... EXAMINE, SEARCH, GET, DROP, WEAR, INVENTORY, TALK, GIVE, and the usual compass directions.

Contains a tutorial for newbies. Type HELP for a reminder of the commands... You can even use GO to quickly go back to places you've already visited.... e.g. GO LIBRARY

What a fun game! It felt good not to be stuck after about 3 screens which is what normally happens to me!

I did find a spelling error, when you give the pastilles it says " you had over the pastilles".

There's always one or two typing errors that get through. :) I'll add them to the list if I ever do a tweaked version, thanks.

Thanks for the feedback. It's most appreciated. Glad you enjoyed it.
