"The Trouble With Trolls" - or at least so my
old Mum used to keep telling me - was that they
simply never knew when to give up. If they found
themselves faced with a plateful of best, prime
quality "deviled orc's eyes" then they would
just sit there and eat them all until they were
sick. Or else they would do battle with their
strongest enemies until neither of them were
capable of swinging another blow. Worse still,
they held on to their gold with a grip that few
could break and had even been known to lay down
their very life to protect it or to take yours in
As for getting them to part with treasure such
as diamonds and pearls that was almost a task
beyond the talents of even the most ardent of the
adventurers that chose to undertake it.
So it was that such a task needed to be carried
out and so it was that Brian WOODLOUSE was the
poor unfortunate sod that had to do it.
The Story So Far
Dear old Grandad had shuffled off his mortal coil
and with his "passing" came the necessary task
of arranging and paying for his funeral. Typical
of the wizened old man was that he chose not to
bother with the likes of such things as banks
or "insurance policies" so there was no ready
cash to cover the costs.
However, the old man had left one item of value
behind him - namely a small chest - and it was
this that attracted Brian's attention. It may
have been small but it was also surprisingly
heavy for its size.
What Brian was to find inside it was to lead him
to one of the greatest adventures of his life ...
This game will recognise all the usual commands such as EXAMINE, OPEN, UNLOCK, SEARCH etc, as well as allowing you to LOOK THROUGH things and also LOOK UNDER things ... These can both be very useful when used in the right places. Use the commands RAMSAVE and RAMLOAD to store
and recall a game "position" using memory, but always resort to the standard SAVE and LOAD in order to make a more permanent record of your progress to cassette or floppy disk.
It is sometimes amazing what you can find hidden down a sofa and there is often more than just coal to be found inside a coal-scuttle ... Also make sure that your gun has all its "accessories" fitted if you want it to be as effective as possible. You have been warned!!!
The following utilities are also available to allow you to edit the supplied screens of this game:
