Now that CompuServe is no more, is there anyone who knows where I can play the deluxe, 751-point version of Adventure?

some added features of the game were:

Leprechaun Rock, Altar, Crypt, Natural Bridge
Blue Grotto
Sword Point
Rotunda, Conservatory, Telephone Booth
Rainbow Room, Hall Of Ice, Green Lake Room
Bubble Chamber, Red Rock Crawl, Star Chamber
Bat Cave, Lost River Canyon (3 ends)

Added surface features:
Sandy Beach, Blackened Shoals, Ocean Vista,
Thunder Hole, Approach to River Styx
Wet Sands/Concrete Pavement, Quicksand
A storeroom inside the building

Lord's Keep, Aviary, Great Hall, Tiled Door
Kitchen w/dumbwaiter
Secret Garden

Mine Entrance, Mine and shaft, Control Room
Tight Tunnel
Cliff Ledge

it was much more in depth than the 350-point version (which I could only squeeze 345 pts. out of) and I'd really like to finish the game (still haven't found the centipede!)

If anyone knows where I can play it, just e-mail me at:

Another version I haven't heard of... I'd like to know where I can get it from as well - if anyone knows, please post up the address and mail me.

I remember playing it a few years back while on Compuserv. I too would love to play this again.

Now this one sounds like a lot of fun. Surely there must be some one with a link to it?

Hints on the 430 are always welcome here

It's LONG0751 on the Russell Dalenberg's Adventure Family Tree. Described as DEC Fortran extension of LONG0500 by David Long. (If you are not familiar with the chart, you can view it as http://www.mipmip.demon.co.uk/adv/advfamily.html)

Curiously enough, it doesn't seem to be in the IF archive, but it may be worth asking Russell whether he has a copy. Trouble is, I don't have his e-mail address handy.

not in my collection but it sounds really fun, try doing an internet search of "adventure games" or "text-only games", something along those lines, i found a lot of different versions throughout the Wabbit doing that. I'll keep my eyes and ears open for it

peace is the word,

I just uploaded the solution to Humungous Cave which the 1000 point Dave Malmberg version of Adventure to:


It will be moved to if-archive/solutions in the future. I can mail you a set of pophints if you are running this under DOS which you most assuredly are.

e-mail me at gamedesigner@dgware.com if you want to chat.

Okay, so are we any closer to discovering the long-lost Adventure 751?

Not to my knowledge. I do have a part of another lost variant (from Norway) but (a) it is aonly a paper printout, (b) consists of only messages and object/location descriptions and (c) gives no indication of the maximal score.
