Best Text Adventure Game of 1990
Published in PC Disk Quarterly
While you are out shopping one day you get caught in a sudden thunderstorm. You enter a nearby Used Book Store to get out of the rain.
To pass the time you select an old book to read. The author was an archaeologist who visited Mexico about 20 years ago. While he was there he found an old stone temple that his native guide called the Temple of Death. After finding the secret entrance he ventured inside and got lost for two days. He barely escaped with his life and a few treasures worth a small fortune. Terrified by his experience he never went back into the Temple. A few years later he recorded his adventure in the book you now hold.
Intrigued by the story you buy the book and you leave the store. Later you decide to take a two-week vacation from your job. You then purchase a few basic supplies and a plane ticket for Mexico.
Special Note: This game contains a few arcade style traps, such as a room with a descending ceiling. To win the game you must figure out how to escape from the room in two minutes or less.
