Identify game from map?

#1

A couple of us went through old hand-drawn maps where we hadn’t necessary remembered to note the game title; we identified all but one, and it’s driving us a bit potty.

Does anyone recognise this game from our map?

Map image and names of locations


In case you can’t read the handwriting, the rooms are described as:

  • SPACE PORT
  • JUNGLE GROVE
  • CROOKED TREES
  • DARK JUNGLE
  • BROOK
  • OUTSIDE CITY GATE
  • BUSH OF TANGLE NIP (?)
  • WATER FALL

Very interesting! I thought it could be Scott Adams’ Strange Odyssey, but that doesn’t have a space port…

Definitively, not Planet of death.

I am pretty sure the game is " Irvine Quik & the Search for the Fish of Traglea". You can download the map of that game from the IFDB page: https://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=qiso9f9dphdlcrk

Thank you! It very much clearly is that game, from Comp '12! And now that I look, I see a save file in my Comp '12 directory.

And it’s “A BUSH OF TRAGLENIP”, it turns out.
