Mr Seek

Mr Seek is a adventure game with more than 20 screens. You start the game on surface and you find gold, water, food, oxygen, cliffs, witch and different monsters in caves. You get advices from witch if you pay first for example 10 gold. Those advices help you to play it through. If you pay little you get false advices. If you pay generously you get really good advices.

Teknopiste Oy published the game on year 1985 for Spectravideo SVI-328 and MSX compatible computers. The game is stored on C-casette and it is loaded into memory in 15 minutes. The game used almost all available memory (29Kb). The program was written with Microsoft Basic. My Spectravideo still works fine. Do you own the casette of Mr Seek?

I have found these pictures from various web addresses.
