Magazine review-(Mystery house , Wizard and the princess)-Electronic fun (1983) and kings quest

Earliest Review - Computer Gaming World (jan, 1982)
"The only drawback to most "adventure" type games is the necessity of limiting commands to just two words. Many actions seem to require more words than are contained within the program's vocabulary. However, if you experiment enough with different terminology, you can overcome this potentially frustrating experience. One hint to aid you in solving these adventures is to "get" any and all objects you can as they will come in handy at some point in time."

1) Inspired by Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None" book  and the board game Clue.

2) First adventure game is Hunt the Wumpus (1972).

3) Emulated in: AppleWin
