Dungeons of Yore

this is less of a game and more of an experiment. How many things can I cram into 2k on the zx81.

In dungeons of Yore, you're only goal is to escape with the treasure. But a great dragon, a crafty golem, and dizzying passageways block your route.

I am not going to say whether this is in alpha or Beta, because it is more of a challenge for me as a programmer. The ZX80,81 are great computers and honestly, some of the games on the system are phenomenal. I hope to one day reach that level of greatness, but for now I have contented myself with
this little experiment.

I wanted to emulate Collosal Cave, Zork and all the great text adventures of the 80's ( a Genre that should be required study for any literature class, don't just read a book, make your own using a computer, or hell, even DOSBOX). As such, this is my foray into Zx81 programming as it should be: peace and quiet, an idea and a ZX81.

enjoy :D

no one's going to comment?

EDIT: Is no one going to comment on what I did? on how it could be improved?

I don't about anyone else but all I get is error code 2/4 when it loads then self runs and when listed there appears to be just 8 lines of code.

What exactly is it supposed to do? :?

Yes, variables (x, y, a...) are not defined in this version. May be it is the wrong tzx file ?

No need to type anything as it's self running. ;)

It fails to run with error 2/4 for me.

It looks like a couple of programs have been saved before the one we want to see.

So, LOAD"" a couple of times, then GOTO 1.

sorry for that, I can't type more than a few lines before it turns into a blinking, slow mess. :lol:
