Arquimedes XXI on Amstrad CPC 25 years later
In 1986 Dinamic Software published its second try text adventure game : Arquimedes XXI. It was also the the second comercial text adventure made in Spain after Yenght and, indeed, it was
the first job of Jorge Blecua (Egroj) in this field, previous to other games as Don Quijote or Abracadabra. It was made in BASIC and Assembler as the comercial parsers didn't appeared yet.
Arquimedes XXI is a Dinamic classic game only available for Spectrum and MSX, until now ! With the efforts of DevilMarkus, MiguelSky (for the adaptation on Amstrad CPC), PulkoMandy (french translation,
main music conversion), voXfReaX (english translation), today you can enjoy this classic text adventure on your Amstrad CPC.
It is available in French, English and Spanish as was Orion Prime before.
