New Adventure: The Manxome Foe

Nov. 30, 2019

The latest adventure ported to Eamon Remastered is The Manxome Foe by Ray Olszewski. This is a fun, whimsical adventure based on the novel Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll. It is a land full of fanciful creatures, some friendly and some not so friendly.

When you reach the woods, you'll find that you don't necessarily make it to every room in the adventure each time you play. Consider that you are but a pawn on a great chessboard and it will make sense. (Notice that the woods is eight rooms wide, even.)

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
   The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
   And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
   The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
   He went galumphing back.

New Adventure: Dracula's Chateau

Oct. 13, 2019

This month's new adventure is a Halloween special! It's Dracula's Chateau by Paul Braun, who was also one of the authors of the classic adventure, Caves of Treasure Island. This adventure has quite a few special features, including a monster that can disappear into walls. Remember everything you learned in books and movies about how to fight various horror monsters. Hint: The flintlock pistol only has one bullet. Pay attention to what kind of bullet it is and wait for the right monster to use it on.

New Adventure: Stronghold of Kahr-Dur

July 21, 2019

Announcing the latest adventure ported to Eamon Remastered: Stronghold of Kahr-Dur by Derek C. Jeter. One of the newest adventures, it was published originally on Eamon Deluxe and never saw an Apple II version.

This one has a good combo of both puzzles and combat. It's a well thought-out adventure from start to finish, with good descriptions and special effects. You'll need to make note of every locked door you encounter, because you'll often have to return to them much later once you have the means to open them. Give this one a try. I think you'll like it.
