Game Description:

Adventure II is a homebrew homage to Warren Robinett's original Atari 2600 game, Adventure. Several years worth of free time in the making, it is now available for the Atari 5200 Supersystem as a 32K cartridge filled with many screens to explore and 22 game variations, and is sold at
ATARIAGE.COM's store with a deluxe glossy manual and possibly some other goodies as supplies last.

Adventure II is jam-packed with four kingdoms, sword and keys, changing hedge mazes, brick-layed castle interiors, a thieving Troll, a powerful Minotaur, three hungry dragons and a few surprises on your quest to return the stolen chalice to the Seashore Kingdom's Castle.

Latest Update to this site: 29 October August 2007.

hints: did you find the 3 bat eggs? Here is a hint: one is hedged in; the other is in plain cold view; the 3rd can only be found in Vast mazes, on a courtyard (wall tapestries) screen, but you'll need bridge or flight assistance to get there.
