OK I'm back to my A500 RAM card with the battery damage. I was
kinda unsure as to whether to leave the damaged card in the A500
without giving it a bit more of a test. So I reached up to the
stack of games I have set aside, above the A1000s and out popped
Lure of the Temptress. I was looking for a suitable game that
needed the 1MB of RAM. Looks like Lure was just the ticket.
I have played Lure of the Temptress, though not to any great
amount. I was once sent the walk through which I could post but
it's a bit long for the blog.
Very colourful artwork which is replicated inside on the game
manual and large poster. You do get your moneys worth that is
for sure. Just the four disks, one boot and the other A,B and C.
I have other versions of the disk that are blue in colour.
The game uses a couple of randomly selected images that give
page numbers to try and fight the piracy. Though it wouldn't
take very long to scribble all the images and pages down, albeit
relatively crudely. Would still do the job.
Amazing how many text games start in dungeons or jails. The trick
with text base games is to first check all the things that are
obviously interactive and then make a note of all the options.
The answer is normally pretty obvious as you are not generally
invited to give your own answer. It's more like a game of pairs
than a true puzzle game. Saying that I was surprised when the
guard caught me and it was game over. [ spoiler ]
Anyway, the primary aim here was to see if the card fell over and
it didn't and the game loaded quite a lot of data into the A500.
And so I have chosen to leave the card in the computer.
In the next blog I show how I saved the computer
