Dark Mage

Recommended Posts

Howdy,

I've been playing Dark Mage on a real Atari (recommend unless you're immune to flicker).

 

I was wondering how far have folks gotten in the game? I can get the black rose, but I haven't figured out what to do with it yet...

 

heh,

Was that the text adventure for Atari? I played it awhile back but dont remember getting very far. Is there a walk-thru for the game? If not, maybe someone should make one?

I just got this game in a care package from a very cool guy (I'll let him out himself), so I haven't cracked it yet, but this gives me a good reason to move it to the top of my stack. I'll start in on it tomorrow!

 

Yes, its the text adventure.

Ahhhh with Stan Jr on the case the secrets of the Dark Mage will be revealed shortly I'm sure. Its been some time since Ive played the game. It seems to me you moved the joystick to select an action or a direction to walk. I wonder how hard it would be to modify the text and actions and produce a totally new text adventure???

The game has been solved pretty quickly after it's release. The game would display a secret code at the end, and Greg Troutman had a little contest on the Stella list where the first person to send in the code could win a copy of the Dark Mage source code. (Hey it's a programmers list after all ) And in case you are wondering, the first person to send in the right answer was me.

 

The game is pretty easy to solve. You just have to make sure that you don't give any item away, that you still could use somewhere else first. This situation can happen more than once in Dark Mage.

Thanks for the tip. I'm going to set off on my adventure tonight.

 

And, no Lemmi, jahfish's mysterious "award" has not yet landed. Although I anxiously await its arrival...

I think I'm close. I had to put it on the back burner for a minute or two, but I'm still working on it. I'll see how far I get tonight.

I must have the super short version. I can only get so far as giving the King the black rose. The game then says end part 1 and I cannot get it to do anything else????

Hmmm...

There are both 4k and 8k versions, but isn't the goal to give the rose back to the king? Maybe it just has a lame ending?

 

The last thing I do is give the artist the black paint and he then paints a rose and gives it to me, but I can do anything after that... any hints dark stan???

Take the black rose to the Castle. Give it to the guard and he will let you see the king. Give the black rose to the king, the end.

The short version ROM has only 4K, while the long one uses 8K.

 

BTW: The ROM that you can download from AtariAge has 8K..

The hammer was always in the inventory. I found the penny on the beach outside the castle...

Weird!

 

Maybe I ate the salmon? LOL. Is your cart have a standard white Hozer label? I think the 4K version would say BETA on it, but I'm not sure...

I finally finished it, and I have the 8K version. I got the "end part one" as well. I was stuck because I gave the gold coin away, before I used it elsewhere. I never found a use for the penny or the hammer though.

 

Cheers,

I seem to be stuck in this game. On power-up I'm outside the castle but can't get anywhere. After using the reset button, I can't find the castle again.
