I remember buying Wizard's Dominion on cassette(XB) and that was an interesting little RPG. They made a few other games. Anyone have 'em?

Wizards Dominion was produced by American software.

I think they where a British Company. I'm looking for their program DeathShip, they also had a tutorial on building DeathShip. I don't know if any copies made it to the US.

Two software houses with the same name! Both American-

 

AARDVARK: 2352 S. Commerce Walled Lake, MI 48088 (313)669-3110 firm that produced text-only adventure games for the 99/4A including: Derelict, Escape From Mars, Paranoids Anonymous, and Pyramids. See Compute! May83, p.125.

 

AARDVARK SOFTWARE: 783 North Water St. Milwaukee, WI 53202 software house that in 1982 wrote Personal Tax Plan program for the TI-99/4A equipped with the UCSD Pascal p-code system.

 

Deathship by AARDVARK is in the TI Gamebase.

 

It also has three different text adventures called Pyramid- one is the Scott Adams Pyramid of Doom.

 

It has two text adventures called Escape from Mars, one of which is credited (correctly??) to Ed Sternberg.

 

I could extract Deathship and post it here if wanted- I don't know where the online TI Gamebase has disappeared to- problems with hosting I believe.

I think I got my names mixed up. Yes, WD was by that company(and it was a horrible game). It was maybe Wizard's Tower? Either way, I played through the whole game.
