As I recall it, the Hobbit from 1982 was written by Melbourn.

The zcode adaptation is a completely different game than the original 1982 version, it would seem.

There was a DOS version of the 1982 Melbourn. It's probably available from some abandonware site. I have it somewhere on a burnt CD. I could try and find it.

cool Jacob, I didn't know there was an infocom hobbit (and I thought I had all the infocom games.

I'll have to try that one myself.

Beware the grue!

Hi all,


I was wondering if anybody knew how I could get my hands on the old
1982 text adventure of The Hobbit? It ran on the C64 on a cassette
tape or floppy disk (not sure if that was a 5 In. or a 3.5 In.), but
if anyone knows where I could get this, it would be awesome! Also, how
the heck would I make it run? Lol.


Thanks in advance,
Ari
