THE GAME

This is an action arcade/adventure game for Spectrum 48K (without music)/128K (with AY music) made using Arcade Game Designer 4.7 and AGDMusicizer II.

The main character is Jason Polton.

He offered his girlfriend, Paula, a nice necklace.

However, a group of ruffians stole them as she strolled through Krap Park.

So Jason went to her to retrieve the necklace.


PLAYING THE GAME

The game has 43 playable rooms.


The objective of the game is to retrieve Paula's necklace.
So, the first thing to do is find the rascals.

When Jason finds the leader of the ruffians, he asked for his girlfriend's necklace.

But the ruffian tells him he must bring him some objects and give him some money to give back the necklace:

  • $100
  • 1 pick
  • 1 shovel
  • 1 garden shears
  • 1 bikini
  • 1 sexy dress
  • 1 pair of handcuffs
  • 1 pair of police sunglasses
  • 2 bottles of whisky

It's the ruffian girlfriend's birthday and he want tomake it unforgetable.

»» During the game play, Jason cannot pick up objects or talk to anyone until he talks to the leader of the ruffians first. ««


So, what can Jason must do to complete his job?


$100

Jason starts the game with $ 20 in his pocket.

Then he have two chances to accumulate more money in order to reach $ 100:
- pick up the 8 $10 that are scattered throughout the park.
- "rob" the women who are in the park who, each time, who does, adds $ 10.

However, Jason will have to spend some money on acquiring bottles of whisky ($ 20 each).
And even if the drunk does not give him a bottle, Jason goes without $ 10.
The more times this happens, the more often it will have to "rob" the women in the park.


1 pick
Caution!
The pick is in a dangerous place, in contact with electrical wires.
Jason will have to search for a pair of insulating gloves.

But to access the places where the gloves are (they're separeted), he will have to pass through the 2 dogs.
And to get past the dogs, Jason will have to find the 2 bones that are buried in the northern part of the park.

And to dig them up, Jason must have the shovel in his possession.
To dig, the player stands next to the small mound and press the Action key.


1 shovel
Just look for it and pick it up.


1 garden shears

To search, the player just touches the garbage bins and press the Action key.


1 bikini

But be careful!
The woman lies naked and screams for help.

In addition to the bikini, Jason pulls out $ 10 from her.
