Does it match any of the books on this site?
If you browse around, the site has multiple sections for brand specific books too, mainly Commodore but also others. Just don't start to leech everything you find, it will lead to IP blocking.

Very interesting link with several books I have been looking for, just not the one I'm seeking in this instance.

At least we've got a long list of titles to eliminate from further suggestions and speculations. The rest of the above site is ordered per brand, so if the book you're looking for was mostly general in approach, that is probably where you would've found it.
For those who don't know your book by memory, it is very little information to base a comprehensive search upon, especially as search engines usually don't work based on the dimensions or general colour of an object. Good luck anyway, and if you happen to remember any more details, go ahead and post them if you like others helping you in searching.

A search on worldcat.org for the keywords "computer game design" returns 42 publications from 1982.
There are a few collections of BASIC programs (many of which are available on bombjack.org), numerous specialist technical and engineering publications, and Jeffrey Stanton. Apple graphics & arcade game design. This is the most likely-looking title from 1982.
Based on his other publications, Stanton was not a university professor, however -- he would later write guides to Atari and Amiga computers (and a book about Venice Beach, California).
A keyword search for "adventure game design" turns up lots of D&D modules and the like, but nothing published in 1982.
Given that Wizardry was only released late in 1981, I would be surprised if there was such a detailed book about the genre published as early as 1982. You may wish to expand the date range for your search a bit.
