I have an old DOS game that is a text based adventure. The games title is 'ADVENTURE - 1' and the author is unknown. I have had this since I first played it on a new 8088, back in the day...
Any ways, the game has a few settings and you give simple commands, GO EAST, CLIMB TREE, TAKE KEYS, GO DOWN, CHOP TREE, GO STUMP, TAKE MUD, etc.
I have been struggling for quite some time on two problems.
1. How do I get past the bear with out feeding him the *ROYAL HONEY* (thus loosing a treasure)? Scanning the compiled code, gives some clues (from text messages that are fed back in the game) that the bear can be startled. Dropping bees near the bear only pisses him off, causing your death. Throwing the axe causes him to doge and the *MAGIC MIRROR* gets destroyed (thus loosing a treasure). I need to get by him to get the mirror and the *GOLDEN CROWN*.
2. How do you move the *SMALL STATUE OF A BLUE OXE*? When you first encounter him in the quicksand bog, you can use the axe to make him disappear (with the axe) to the "S PLACE", but once there, it appears immovable. I need to get it over to the stump to log it as a treasure, but "It is beyond my power to do that". Any ideas, cause I have tried evrything I can think of here...
Any help is greatly appreciated, I can complete all other parts of the game but these two pieces.
