Simple adventure game.

Picture of Simple adventure game.
Simple adventure game to play and modify for your own needs. The program was originally written in Pascal and I transcribed it to be a derivative work in QBasic. It certainly could be transcribed again to some other language. There are no graphics in this adventure, but you could certainly add your own. I compiled with Freebasic for both Linux and for MSWindows. You can easily download freebasic and install it on your system to compile the code.

Note: You should be competent enough to compile programs to get this to work. Since every system is different, I can not give instructions for every system. I can only just give you the program source and and let you run with it.

You need to download and install freebasic for your system. That site has the instructions for installation:

http://www.freebasic.net/

Note: There maybe some qbasic compiler for the Mac computer, but you will have to look for it.

Step 3: Download and compile the code.

1. To compile the code, you will want to download the file to your freebasic directory
2.  From the command line issue the command:
    fbc -lang qb gamadven.bas
3. After it compiles you can run gamadven and play the simple game. it is all keyboard controlled      so there should be no problem playing it.

Step 4: Final words.

Though this game might be simple, it contains the framework for you to be able to develop something much more complicated. I just given you some building blocks to play with.

Watch for a web version that can be run on a server soon.

Enjoy!
