i used to play this game in elementary school, i had to be between 1984-1989 and it was on a 5 1/2 inch or 5 1/4 inch floppy for IBM (i think it was ibm). it was a game where you have to go through this castle or tower, it was text + monochrome (green and black i think, not sure though) and you went through this building and if you entered the wrong rooms you would get stuff like "poison ivy" and die. i have been trying to remember and find the game for the past 20 years and i just cant remember it.

the controls were like "go left" "look at shelf" "open door" ....sigh at least i think. :fou: :cry: :cry: :fou:

the graphics were just like an outline of the room you were in and maybe an outline of the items that were in the room, but it didnt have anything good, not like kings quest and things like that.
