Does anyone remember the Commodore 64 magazine on a tape 64 Tape Computing?

They published a couple of text adventures, one that sticks in my mind is True Spit (it was western based, obviously!)

Also played to death The Lurking Horror on my miggy, although some of the puzzles were very obscure, cutting a chalk drawn pentagram with a knife?

Great sound effects though!!!

The Norwegian translation of True Spit was the first ever adventure game I played. Loved it! Funny thing is, when I came back to it years later I found I had drawn my map upside down... (and I still haven't completed it).

Behind Closed Doors on the Spectrum - an adventure game where you had to escape from a locked toilet. It appealed to my adolescent sense of humor at the time - and probably does to this day. :lol:
