This is a re-creation of a 1979 text adventure for small computers.

In 1979, most affordable personal computers did not have a lot of memory. One of the "affordable" ones that cost about $795 was the Commodore PET with 8K of memoryof which only 7123 bytes were actually available for a BASIC program. While large mainframe computers with 200K could run that early adventure called Colossal Cave Adventure (1976, Will Crowther) and some of the larger (i.e. more expensive) personal computers with then expensive floppy disks were running games such as Zork or Dungeon, a system without that extra hardware was somewhat limited.

Having enjoyed Colossal Cave, Roger Chafee wondered if it would be possible to create something similar to run on these smaller computers - after a couple of intense work weeks, he wrote a program called Quest. This is a re-creation of that program for Android. It shows what can be done with a bit of creative effort, even with limited resources. As a bonus, it is fun to play.

Most people can complete this adventure in about 2 hours, although it has been done in an hour, and some people haven't finished it after a day of frustrating search.

Can you find the pirate's treasure and get it out of the cave?

Thanks Clearly, back in those days there were no hints, no appeals to dev, no mercy. A user hostile experience, and apparently that's just the way they liked it back then. 5 stars for historical accuracy. 1979 was not for wimps.

Unplayable Really needs a walkthrough. Since I can't find one, uninstall. EDIT: Colossal Cave, the original Zork Trilogy, and the Adventions games (all legally available for free) didn't come with walkthroughs either, but that hasn't stopped anyone helping others out with them. And if you believe that Quest is simple, then I suggest you try playing it with multiple cognitive disabilities. Jackass.

Needs improvement Better descriptions, with a list of which directions you can travel would get two stars added.

Great Stuff. Like an interactive book. It keeps the imagination going. Classic.

Fred Carter

Love it Colossal caves and Mr Crowther comes to mind. Ideal if you want to show kids how good games were prior to consoles.

DYLAN MADDEN

Great! Been looking for some thing kinda like zork for my phone and I finally got it.

Has potential Would be fun, if it went further. Just repeats the same replies, nothing different.

Ryan Piotrowski

Amazing. If you have a brain you'll love this game.

Blast from the past Outstanding job recreating this classic. Yes kids...when I was young we really did have to walk 5 miles uphill through the snow, just to play a game.
