Description

This is the Sinclair QL Adventure game The Prawn. written by Mert (Martin Hopkins) and published by Talent Software for the Sinclair QL home computer and now published by RWAP Software under licence.

The Prawn is a humorous text adventure which forms a spoof of the original Pawn adventure by Magnetic Scrolls.

You play the role of a Prawn who was scooped up in a trawler net and you end up on a strange land, wearing a copper tail-band, which must have been placed on you during your sleep because you cannot remember how it got there. Apart from noticing that you can now move about on land nearly as easily as you could in the Sea, you have an odd sensation that you have been here before..

Many features of this game are similar to the Pawn, although not all of the puzzles can be solved in the same manner. There is a philosopher, an itinerant salesperson, a magician who arrives on a giant pop bottle top, a castle with gardens to explore, a mountain with a cave, an Ice Tower guarded by a shrimp and even a tree stump!!

This adventure comes in three parts (King's Keep, The Ancient City of Laros and The Badlands. Much larger than the original Pawn, this should keep you occupied for many a long evening.

Do not worry if you have never played the original game The Pawn, as this spoof is self-contained and contains enough explanation for you to perform all the tasks without reference to the original adventure.

Supplied on 3.5" Disk
