That loads OK, but its not really an adventure or a game. The only user interaction is to press the enter key and get more text to display.

What were you trying to achieve?

What were you trying to achieve?
The goal was to make an adventure game for non english speakers, first targeting german speakers ( I live in lodi, half the population is of german descent) then on and on.

It's more of an experiment then anything else
Tell the story then in part 2 give the control to the player
The Zx81 is NOT like an atari or Commodore, i can't have the text and other stuff on screen at once
even with 48k, primarily because the keyboard entry sucks. it's what i have to live with.
still, glad you played. ideas for improvement?
