General Information

Name: The Count Adventure

Number: 5

Publisher: Adventure International

Year: 1981

Written by: Scott Adams

Dedicated to: Alvin Files

Price: $19.95

Blurb: You wake up in a large brass bed in a castle somewhere in Transylvania. Who are you, what are you doing here, and why did the postman deliver a bottle of blood? You’ll love this advanture, in fact, you might say it’s Love at First Byte…

Treasures: None

The Walk Through

This adventure is HUGELY random. Normally, a walk through takes me an hour to put together, but this one took almost three days. The major problem is that when the postman rings, when night falls, when you get tired, etc. are all not predictable. My advice is to save game often (and with different filenames) and just keep bouncing back and forth instead of waiting … as waiting may make too much time pass.
