Secretum Labyrinth Dark Castles Video Wednesday, December 5, 2018. Adventure Role Playing Game for the Atari 8-bit Computer. Showing some different information screen displayed during when the title screen is displayed. In response to some posts on the last thead, I am showing more animations that happen during game play, scroll unrolling, hidden exits opening, weapon motions, and getting new weapons. Some screens have new textures used on some of the screens. The forest and town have the foliage arranged less into straight lines, making it seem like it was growing and then cleared I changed what I could without extensively re-writing large potions of the programming. I am more concerned about debugging the game and making sure everything works correctly before making these videos and sending it off to be beta tested.
The music has Eight Different Tracks that play in the town and different castles, some tracks will play if a different quest is selected. The save and reload progress feature requires a disk drive with a blank formatted disk. Since it only needs to save a 3K block of memory, you can store many different states of your progress through the game. The disk screen selects the block by selecting A to Z as stated on screen. But 0-9 also works and some symbols. You can get more with an enhanced density disk.
There are Five Different Quests with altered screens, your path you need to go one point to another will be different as passage will be blocked and new ones will open up.
Game Requires 64K RAM XL/XE OS with Ram Available under OS, Supporting 800XL, 1200XL 65XE, 130XE, XEGS, and 600XL with 64K. Any hardware upgrades (like 800 Incognito Board ) are at the risk of the end user. Joystick and Keyboard to play. If you use an XEGS, you will need your keyboard attached. Available to be announced.
Now has anyone had any problems running XL/XE software with their Incognito Board?
I am looking into doing more Adventure Role Playing Games. Maybe something much more Advance Dungeons and Dragons related. I am not sure how many will want to play a turn bases RPG game vs something action adventure based like this game, or Zelda, Adventure, or Golden Axe Warrior....
