Twin Kingdom Valley

Post by slacey1070 » Mon Aug 02, 2010 3:39 am

Anyone remember this graphic adventure from the C64 - by Bug Byte if I remember rightly?

I remember being blown away by seeing a rabbit hope across the screen... ok... it was a v.basic white sprite - but it was an animated graphic adventure... was it the first?!?

I had it on the Electron, loved it at the time but I seem to remember a very frustrating cave system....

IIRC it came out in a mobile phone version a few years back.

Have good memories of this like Mr Carlos also on the Electron. The drawing of locations was part of the charm back in 1983.

Did the C64 version have music as well as animated rabbits?

I seem to remember it had some music, yes...

Don't remember getting that far into it to be honest, but I loved those graphics...

I remember it. I really liked the cover art....

Good job really because I had two cassette copies, both for the c64, and I could never get either to load!

I had it on the Electron, too, but never got very far in it. I think the only Electron text adventure I ever clocked was Superior Software's Stranded, but that was very, very easy.

Loving that artwork, especially the logo, which is beautiful. :D

I'm sure there's been an article in the mag about it.

You're right - the cover art is very very good - I'd forgotten that....

Yeah I love Twin Kingdom Valley. I played the C64 version. I remember discovering that Iron Grate and going underground and picking up the HoldAll(so you can carry more stuff!). A great game. I also managed to get inside the castle, but that's it! The Dragon always toasts me in there.

I think the mobile version has been mentioned in RG - but has their been an article about it? If not it would be a great idea.

I also think a point and click remake like Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy remake would be good for it.
