    Text Adventures...

    Advertisement



    Hello there!
    I'm a brand new Pearl user (as my thumbs were to big for the 8700 and I kept making mistakes)!

    I have but one question - recently I've been feeling nostalgic and fancied playing some text based adventures from my youth. Is there any such adventures, emulators or similar available on the pearl that would allow me to recreate my gaming hey-day?

    Thanks in advance,

    Ian!

    does that mean there is such a thing available? I tried using the search function but I am kind of rubbish at all this forum malarky!
    Do you have any link to a specific text-game?

    Thanks again!

    You are probably going over the heads fo everyone here born before 1975 bringing up text adventures . I use to love playing Zork, Adventure and Leather goddess of phobos on my commodore 64 when I was in Jr High back in the day. I think they used to have some online portals and being that they were 170-331kb programs, you could have a ton of them on the BB if someone was ingenious enough to code one.

    I want the text adventure game that had the Hall of the Mountain King as one of the earlier chambers in it. I think it was called collosus Cave. But I'm not sure. Used to play that on a TSO terminal connected to a PDP-11. When I was in college.

    As I said, I'm the oldest Geek I know.

    Collosus Cave sounds like a location in Zork or Adventure.

    That may have been what it became once it got out of the college computer labs.

    I just barely remember anything about it but getting yelled at for using the limited resources for games.
    But it helped pass time in my microprocessor architecture lab while we waited for Motorola to produce the first 6800 chips so we could build something.

    Are you looking for C64 or ZX spectrum emulator? For BB?

    for RPGs maybe try here
    http://www.getjar.com/software/Java/All/Search/rpg
    go from your BB and pretend like you downloading to your computer (get the jar file)

    haven't tried them so i don't know if they work

    also i just googled MMOPRG and mobile
    and came up with this
    http://www.tibiame.com/home/?language=en
    I don't play mmorpgs but it seems cool
    I guess you would have to trick the site into
    telling it you have a different phone, since BB's aren't on there

    I'll give them a go - in terms of emulators, I suppose the C64 would be the weapon of choice for me!

    Here is a link to Scott Adams Text Aventures playable online. After nearly 20 years I was able to beat the Count! Might work on you BB, don't see why not PHP based.
