I remember back in 1984 when I got Pirate's Adventure, being the first adventure game I ever played. I sat with my friends in front of the TV set, and we were heading around cluelessly in those first rooms. Then I said, "hey, look, there is something new! The screen has turned red! Don't know what that means, though." - "How did you do that?" - "I climbed out of the window and said JUMP. Funny that this is the way to go on in the game..." Later I found that red means dead.

The game has only two treasures. Not sure what all you want for pics. Here is the final score screen. I do have the notes I made while playing (not a traditional map), but since this is ongoing, I'll hold off on including those.

 

EDIT: I somehow overlooked the post that said we could play any one we liked. Oh well, here's Pirate Adventure anyway!

Savage Island.This was the second adventure I got, and it proved to be one of the hardest ones. Also, the outcome of Savage Island 1 is important for Savage Island 2 (different pass codes).

We should also consider an Infocom adventure. I'm currently (hah, for some months...) trying to solve Planetfall, and I am that close --->||<---- to searching for a walkthru...

Noooo! Don't look for a walkthrough! You will eventually solve it :)

As to using Infocom adventures, these tend to be much harder, and a month will likely not be enough except for the fanatical player... On that topic, is there a compilation of the Infocom titles for the TI?

This was a fun trip down memory lane. Pirate adventure finally solved.

I have four of these adventures on cassette. Will try “strange odyssey” next.

Depending on if I can get it to load.

I'm currently playing Savage Island 1, and my (bad) memories are coming back ... This game (the second I played back in those days) is almost ridiculously difficult. I used the Adventure Editor to analyse it, and there are some points that are practically beyond guess. Sorry, Scott, that was way over the top.

 

Savage Island 1 makes it especially cumbersome to play, since there are some dead ends without warning (you can reach an area where you will never return from when you do not have some special object in your inventory), you cannot save the game in critical situations, and the probabilities are set in a way that makes it much more likely you will die than you achieve some state that allows you to advance.
