A Troll's Revenge

8bitAG (2019)

Written by Gareth Pitchford

Can you help retrieve the treasure stolen from the Cave of Magic?

A Troll's Revenge was written as part of CaveJam 2019. The aim of the gamejam was to create an Adventuron-powered game by expanding, and enhancing the existing template given for the one-puzzle adventure 'The Cave of Magic' by Chris Ainsley.

The graphics for A Troll's Revenge, crafted by helpcomputer0, weren't finished in time for the end of the jam, so a version, featuring Gareth's 'programmer art' was released instead.

8-bit versions for ZX Spectrum & Amstrad (CP/M) were produced using an early version of Chris Ainsley's Adventuron to PAW converter; as well as manual extra tweaks and additional QoL coding. Graphics appear in the +3 version by repurposing Paul Brunyee's code from the Spectrum +3 version of Tony Collins' The Hermitage.
