    Can anyone help me identify this game, here is what I remember

    - It was a 'space adventure' in a similar style to something like the rocketeer
    - It was on the PC aound and about 1988/1989
    - Came on about 20 5 1/4" disks
    - Consisted of a lot of very restricted mini games
    - I think it was billed as an interactive film
    - Started on Earth then went to the moon (and maybe Mars)
    - May have involved fighting Nazis (or that may be a red herring)

    anybody any ideas?

    Hi,

    I have a similar problem - I'm trying to find out the name of a text-based adventure game on the Amstrad that I remember very little about. I don't hold huge hopes that anyone will remember it! There were a few pictures and it was the usual Go North, Go East etc. The main things I remember about it are that if it didn't understand what you meant it typed "Please elaborate" and also there is a bit where you come across a 'one-armed bandit' and the graphic is of a bandit with one arm!

    Help!

    No, it was definitely text based. The one-armed bandit was actually quite minor, but it's one of the few things I remember. We also got stuck at a deep chasm at one point. I know this isn't very helpful, but I really enjoyed playing it and hoped it might spark a memory for someone!

    We never actually completed it, as my parents bought a swish new Amiga with a colour screen (gasp) before we managed!
