Back in 1988, there was a software publishing company called Taskmaster Software. Despite amazing plans of world domination, they released a total of zero games. However one of these unreleased games managed to escape to the Internet along with rumours of other Taskmaster games. This is the first release of the prequel to the game that escaped. With this Taskmaster Software officially releases its second game for the ZX Spectrum 48K, other platforms may follow.

The game itself is a text adventure written with the venerable PAW. Unlike its predecessor, it contains no graphics.

Hello, Taskmaster.

Any chance you could reveal your name, please?


Sure my name is in the credits. Ed Toovey.

Thanks for the game! Any chance of a TAP version? Can't convert this one with TZX2TAP. Thanks.
