Electric Adventures, The Games – Escape From Planet Beta
This is the 22nd video in a new series where I am going to highlight each of my classic games I wrote for both the original Spectravideo and MSX computers.
In this video we have my first text adventure, Escape from Planet Beta.

The story is not original, I am sure the genesis of this game was from a list for another computer, but I enhanced the command parser and it was the start of my text adventure engine that I would use a few more times with some other titles.
