Actually The Gold Mine and The Princess, an
adventure/simulation in which you have to provide the king with a huge
herd of cattle in order to win the hand of the Princess. The only way
you can purchase cattle is at the local sales but you will need gold.
The only way to get gold is from the mine but the mine was abandoned
years ago when a fearsome beast appeared in the depths. No one knows if
it is still there and there may well be other pitfalls (literally!),
including a pack of wolves that have taken residence, but your desire
for the Princess is so strong that you must try. The game is divided
into two playing arenas, the village and the mine. In the village there
is an on-screen menu to guide you in the fashion of a simulation whilst
the mine is more of an adventure with you having to map things out and
decide how to avoid the perils whilst collecting the treasure. This is
an interesting combination of role play, adventure and simulation and
should keep fans of these styles happy for many an hour. Also included
is DEATHWORLD, a standard text adventure set in space where you are
about to land on a small planet at the edge of the Milky Way to discover
what has happened to a mining expedition whose communications suddenly
stopped some time ago. A nicely atmospheric space adventure.
