Adventure in TimeType: Text only Written 1981 by Paul Berker.
Comments: Travel through four different locations in time via the help
of a robot to find and kill the evil Nostradamus before he can
take over the world.
Birth of the PhoenixType: Text only Written 1981 by Paul Berker.
Comments: Tutorial adventure. It's just an ordinary (easy) treasure
hunting for the beginner, much different than the other
popular tutorial of the time, Mission: Asteroid from Sierra.
Dodge CityType: Bitmap graphics/Multiple choice Written 1984 by Fraser Orr.
Notes: I have seen claims that it was published by Phoenix Software Ltd, Middlesex.
Comments: You must complete arcade on A to get code for adventure on B.
Here is a review of Dodge City
Queen of PhobosType: DG (black and white) Written 1982 by Paul Berker and Bill Crawford.
Comments: Travel on board a Martian spacecraft to locate the mask of
Kuh-Thu-Lu, while avoiding the ship's evil occupants, in this
science fiction adventure.
Sherwood ForestType: G (some animation) Written 1982 by Dale Johnson and Dav Holle [graphics].
Notes: Advertised as "Sof-toon #1" but it might have been the only one. Probably only for Apple II.
Comments: Parody of Robin Hood, and featuring Friar Tuck, Maid Marian and
Little John. Hardly any plot, but still amusing and well drawn,
for the time.
MasqueradeType: Bitmap graphics Written 1983 by Dale Johnson and Rick Incrocci [graphics].
Notes: Distributed by All American Adventures. There was a $1000 prize for the first person to solve it. The $1000 prize was a parody of the treasure-hunt prize offered by Kit Williams' book of the same name, which after mass hysteria over three years, had finally been solved shortly before this game game out. I have also seen this game as by American Eagle. The graphics were done using Penguin's Graphics Magician.
Comments: Private eye is set up against knife-throwing bad guys and bombed
hotels - as well as toilets for using bad language! - while
exploring a zoo and more.
Fraktured FaeblesType: BG (some animation) Written 1985 by Dale Johnson and Rick Incrocci [graphics].
Comments: Parody of fables and other bedtime story stuff. You get to
meet Goldilocks and the 3 Bears, one of the 3 Little Pigs, the
rabbit, the Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter from Alice in
Wonderland, Little Red Riding, the Wolf and Grandma, all with
essentially no plot at all!
