Adventure

Little icon of the game

A little text-based adventure game with monster combat and items and secrets and stuff.

This game was my first attempt at coding. I started on this project in my first year of high school and worked on it on and off throughout the next couple of years. Since then, every few years I've come back to it and have ended up completely rewriting it (usually for the worse)!

I'll never forget being in Mr. Hodgson's computer lab with my friend Howard teaching me C++ and observing my progress in coding the first area, Glen Park. (I soon followed up with the next area, Howard Street, as a tribute to him.)

A download is not currently available since I'm still in the process of rewriting it and making it more palatable, but hopefully will be one day.

Much of the time he would wander at will through the ship's inexhaustible electronic library. He had become fascinated by the great explorations of the past - understandably enough, in the circumstances. Sometimes he would cruise with Pytheas out through the Pillars of Hercules, along the coast of a Europe barely emerging from the Stone Age, and venture almost to the chill mists of the Arctic. Or, two thousand years later, he would pursue the Manila galleons with Anson, sail with Cook along the unknown hazards of the Great Barrier Reef, achieve with Magellan the first circumnavigation of the world. And he began to read the Odyssey, which of all books spoke to him most vividly across the gulfs of time.
