Copyright Information VERSION HISTORY --------------- 1.1: 19th June, 2008 (Format update) 1.0: 2nd March, 2004 (First version) =============================================================================== 1. Introduction =============================================================================== Seastalker is a fun little text adventure aimed mainly for a younger audience, but due to the level of depth in the descriptions and complexity in some of the puzzles it can be enjoyed by people of all ages. The main character is a young inventor (whose name you can choose at the start of the game), who is working on experiments in his research laboratory. Suddenly a message comes through over the videophone by the commander of a research station called Aquadome, who asks for your help in getting rid of a monster that is attacking their station. Upon arrival, it seems that the monster is not the only thing to worry about, as someone is going around causing all sorts of trouble on the station. This game was given the Introductory Difficulty rating by Infocom, and for this reason there are far fewer locations the many other Infocom adventures and the difficulty of the puzzles is very easy. Overall, this is an entertaining game and is a nice break from some of the more difficult Infocom adventures. =============================================================================== 2.
