April 29, 2017

This is another early Eamon from the 1980s, written by Jay Hinkelman. It's a bit of a hack-and-slash with a few keys to find and buttons to press.

New Adventure: Beginner's Forest

April 23, 2017

I just added another adventure converted from Eamon Deluxe. It's an alternative to the Beginner's Cave called the Beginner's Forest. Like the Beginner's Cave, it's a small, simple adventure aimed at novice characters.

New Adventure: Escape from the Orc Lair

Feb. 5, 2017

This is a fun little hack-and-slash adventure. The data files I imported were from Frank Black's Eamon Deluxe. Frank added a few fun embellishments to the original Apple 2 game data, which make it a more enjoyable play.

From the programmer's perspective, it has a benefit of requiring no custom code at all. All the hidden passages and special effects are built using just the core game engine.
