This text adventure game (interactive fiction) was originally written by Barrie Eaton on the Amstrad back in 1992.
YOUR OBJECTIVE: Rumours have spread about an ecentric professor discovering lost treasure not from this world. A dark manor holds the secret!
This Android edition tries hard to keep the original quality of that game, but at the same time provide features available from Android.
Hyperlink assist provides smart context menus as an alternative to using the keyboard.

An automap will track your location progress. Can easily view by tapping the map icon. Landscape mode will show a minature version of the automap.

Tap on an image to 'look' at your current location.
Tap on the descriptive text to close the keyboard if open.
Speech input is available to issue commands.
