A downloadable game

This software runs on the ZX Spectrum Next home micro.

To run, copy the folder and contents onto your Next's SD Card, then load "Kings Ransom.TAP" from the browser. Push N for Next mode when loading. You might also want to adjust the CPU speed for more responsiveness.

King's Ransom is a conversion of a very short and simple text adventure that was given away with The Graphic Adventure Creator from Incentive Software.

This was created as part of a tutorial video on making text adventures for the Spectrum Next.

Download contains the Next game file, plus Adventuron file and the exported file ready for DAAD conversion (purely for interest to those following along with the video).

Been wanting to play this for a while, but don't have a Spectrum Next (thankfully, I found the Adventuron txt file to use instead).

Gorgeous port of this classic GAC "sample" ๐Ÿ˜
The pixelart is really top-notch ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Wonder if you perhaps missed a death in the tunnels?
Can't seem to be able to able to go "S" and fall into the crevasse?

Either way - this is now my favourite way to play this classic adventure. Thanks! ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ‘


Whoops, I guess I overlooked that! Never mind, this project was made to help people learn to develop with Adventuron so it serves its purpose.

So happy that more text+graphics adventures are coming. Thanks for the porting!
