Supposedly stolen by pirates whilst en route from West Africa, the Jewels of Babylon were intended as a wedding gift for an Indian Princess.
Your task in this fascinating adventure is to locate the jewels which are presently hidden on a remote island where the pirates are based.
On finding the jewels, you need to return to your ship, safely at anchor in the bay.Numerous brilliant hi-resolution pictures serve only to enhance this adventure which has more than a hundred locations for you to visit.
Input commands are in real English, where adjectives, adverbs and prepositions can and must be included where appropriate. At other times, the traditional verb/noun format is accepted.
Objects are collected on your travels to help in the quest, a complete inventory can be listed.
The most pleasurable adventure I have seen. Somehow movement around the island seems less repetitive than others. The computer's vocabulary is extensive, making communication more responsive.
Your game can be saved to tape for future loading, an essential facility to ardent adventurers.
