GRAND UNDERGROUND TEXT ADVENTURE (SPTIRE.EXE) By STEVEN LEE ANTIC SUPER DISK BONUS -- JUNE 1988 "Suddenly you hear chattering noises from below. Perhaps someone down there can help. You have only one choice, to investigate and attempt to find a spare tire..." XXX GETTING STARTED You'll want to save your partially completed adventures, so use the DOS menu C command to copy the Grand Underground Text Adventure to a DOS 2 compatible disk that contains only the DOS.SYS and DUP.SYS files. Rename SPTIRE.EXE to AUTORUN.SYS if you want it to load and run automatically. XXX To load or save a game, just type LOAD or SAVE respectively. You may save as many as nine different versions on a disk. Type QUIT to restart the adventure. If you don't enjoy the gaudy colors of the multiple text windows, press the inverse key for the monochrome display. Antic's Grand Underground Text Adventure uses the classic verb-noun command format such as EXAMINE KNIFE or GET KNIFE. All direction commands can be typed with just the first letter -- North, South, East, West, Up, Down. XXX Here is a list of verbs recognized by the program. Only the first four letters of these commands are read: LOAD SAVE QUIT DIG SAY BEAT KICK KILL BURN LIGHt CLIMb CLOSe CUT DROP EAT LOOK GET TAKE GIVE ENTER JUMP WEAR SWIM LIST OPEN POUR PULL PUSH READ SLIDE USE GO EXAMine INSErt XXX HOW YOU GOT HERE Let's set the scene for the story of Antic's Grand Underground Text Adventure (originally titled Spare Tire). It's time to visit your mother again, whether you want to or not. You head towards mom's house, realizing that the last time you visited her was over a year ago. By now, not only did you lose her phone number, but you also don't recall how to get there. XXX Day becomes night as you drive around in circles. The roads are narrow and dark and even with your high-beams on, it is still hard to see. Suddenly, a little dog appears out of nowhere. You swerve to avoid the animal, only to lose control and slide into a hole. You see stars around you, but fortunately you are not hurt. The only damage is a very flat tire. Looking in the back of the trunk, you discover that the spare tire was used last time you visited your mother. Suddenly you hear chattering noises from below. XXX Perhaps someone down there can help. You have only one choice, to investigate and attempt to find a spare tire. Have fun adventuring and don't forget to visit your mom soon!
