Valley of the MinotaurWritten 1984 or before.
Comments: It was your basic find-the-hidden-treasures type of game (the
treasures were then deposited in the phone booth from where you
start the game), but with a requirement to slay the minotaur in
order to complete the game. The game may have been a tad buggy,
but I couldn't say for sure. There was a fountain with a pool
of acid in which there was a black pearl and that it was possible
to retrieve the pearl with a pair of glass gloves. The game appears
to have a direct rip-off from Zork I in that there is a giant bat
which will deposit you in various locations around the game.
I believe the parser was strictly verb-noun.
This might have been some shareware non-commercial thing.
