I just discovered that I played a nonstandard version of Adventure as a kid. (This is kind of disconcerting, given that I’ve been digging around the source code for weeks.)
The version I played was written in FORTRAN. One of the treasures was an African gray parrot in a pirate aviary, accessible by a rubber raft. There was also an office of some kind with the words “how do you spell relief?” on the wall, and after you read the message, you could use “Rolaids” to teleport to and from the well house. I think the magazine at Witt’s End might have been a copy of Byte magazine.
…and that’s all I’ve got. I can’t remember anything else from “my” version that isn’t in the standard 350 point version. I’m pretty sure “my” version was also 350 points, but everything in the 350 point version looks familiar.
Does this sound familiar to anyone else?
