Jewels of Darkness

Adventure 1986 Dos Dosbox Level 9 Computing Graphical IF

Colossal Adventure, Adventure Quest and Dungeon Adventure

Colossal Adventure, Adventure Quest and Dungeon Adventure are the three oldie text based adventures (with additional static imagery to... spark your imagination!) that are included in this package, all three released by Level 9 Computing, a company that also produced them and that was on the way to become as known as Infocom had it been just a little bit more lucky. All things considered, all of these games are lovely adventure adventures (as in, they will take you through a series of exploration heavy set pieces) traditional but not that traditional that they can't offer you some excitement. Nope, quite on the contrary, the games play well enough with the building blocks that they put forth. They also have more narrative in there, than just the regular on your way you go adventures. Anway, you might know of Colossal Adventure most as it is the father of all cave exploration text based games, known for its intriguing and huge cave complexes. It was, it seems produced to explain the developer's love for speology, which actually got this to be a lovely and carefully constructed game, bits of which have survived in popular culture decades after it was set out in the public. So definitely play them, they're well recreated, and also, staples of gaming culture that are so well worth it.
