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.
