This game was being discussed on the Coleco Adam public facebook page.  I'm not on facebook so I'm posting this here.

 

2010 The Text Adventure comes with a saved game that is only a couple of moves from the ending.  There is a "Mission Accomplished" message and an awesome graphics display with music.

 

However, this saved game only works if you are using Tape Drive #1.  If you try to retrieve the saved game from Tape Drive #2 or a Disk Drive, they programmed it so it plays the music to the song 'Here we go into the wild blue yonder'.

 

 

 

Easter Egg Ending

 

 

 

Saved game starts at 1:35 of the video.  Graphics/music start at 2:09

On facebook I posted that I have converted the data image to an interleaved disk image that you can use in an emulator or with the VDD so you do not have to use a real data pack to see this:

After all these years, I still love watching/listening to the endings of 2010 and Dragon's Lair. Thanks for posting.

I always knew about the saved game - it was the only way I could finish it - but I never knew about the easter egg!
