Escape From Dispozon:II

Grand Finale of Antic's Biggest Disk Bonus. Program by Kevin Sherratt

When we left you last month, the Antic Disk contained only Part I of Escape From Dispozon. Now, on the entire Side B of this month's Antic Disk you will find the conclusion of the saga-Antic's first two-part Super Disk Bonus. So return with us now to that charming "planet-fill" Dispozon, the garbage dump of the galaxy.

NOTE: Without the objects and information you picked up from last month's disk installment, you have no chance to complete the final solution of the adventure. You need BOTH the March and April 1989 Antic Disks in order to attain final victory over the perils of Dispozon.

As hapless star-pilot Havilfad, you must find away to escape the slimy, greasy, junk-filled shores of Dispozon--before you are fatally poisoned by the toxic smog. Winning the game involves finding and refitting an old abandoned spaceship. With your grumpy companion droid Iggy, make your way through rubbish, trash and sewage. Fight off grouchy crabs and fierce amoebas, pick up all sorts of yucky stuff and put up with oodles of abuse from the insufferable Iggy, who expects no end of gratitude from a miserable little worm like you!

Hear your faithful companion Iggy say, "What are you doing, Master? Need I remind you that dying can seriously affect your efficiency rating?" or "The trash wall is four stories high and weighs 9 million tons. Whatever ill-advised plan is fermenting in that sordid little brain yours had best not include me!"

These thrills and more are all yours, on the March and April Antic Disks. Escape From Dispozon is a very large BASIC text adventure--much too large to run on a single side of a disk. We never ran a program this large before but Escape from Dispozon was to good to pass up.

Start the game by booting Side B of last month's March 1989 Antic Disk. Play the game until Iggy says, "Insert the story disk in Drive 1 and press RETURN."

This is your cue to remove the March 1989 Antic Disk and insert Side B of this month's Antic Disk. Then Press [RETURN] to continue.

Hints for playing Escape From Dispozon and a list of acceptble commands are in a help file last month on the March 1989 disk. To read the Help file or obtain a printout, select choice 5, HELP.BAS, from the Side A menu.
