Scott Adam's "Adventure"

Recommended Posts

I have a trove of old Adventure cassette games (#1 - #12 at least) and I was wondering if they held any value on the TI 99/4a? I'm familiar with Adventure International and their release on the Atari 8-bit line and if I'm not mistaken they're relatively valuable for the Atari 400/800, but I was wondering if they held a similar value for the TI 99/4A?

The original Scott Adams Adventure cassettes for the TI are actually relatively common. The TI was a bit different from other systems, in that the Adventure engine was a cartridge and the cassettes (or disks) were just the database for that specific adventure. The separation also allowed for the possibility of adventure editing software to compose new games that would use the game engine in the cartridge. There are at least 60 such adventures in existence for the TI, in addition to the original 12 and the three Questprobe adventures that Adventure International released.

Indeed the Adventure cartridge is probably one of the best two-word text adventure engines ever made. It's ONLY real problem is the memory limitation of around 12k, since it was designed to run on the base TI console which only had 16K of VRAM for storage.
