Description of Sea Quest

In mid-1980s, a small company called Mark Data Products released 6 parser-based graphic adventure games similar to early Polarware and Scott Adams titles. While the games are reasonably successful on Tandy's CoCo computer, the IBM PC versions did not achieve the same level of success.

While the graphics are quite good at the time, the parser is quite primitive - only simple verb+noun constructs such as GET HAT are understood, and some verbs that are common in IF games such as SEARCH are not always recognized. Fortunately, the games make up for primitive parser with well-written plot, fun characters, and some clever puzzles. The plot of Sea Search: "Get your shark repellant and scuba tanks ready! The underwater scenes in this adventure are unforgettable. You'll run into a pirate, a mermaid, and some hungry sharks in this colorful and unique treasure hunt."

Thanks to the generosity of Bob Withers, co-creator of these underdogs who put both the games and their source codes up on his website for free download, you can now experience a forgotten past of the early days of adventure gaming. All are recommended, but if you want the best of the bunch, I highly recommend my personal favorites: Trekboer and Calixto Island.

Please; May you correct the real name in the principal page, naming the game as SEA SEARCH instead SEA QUEST?.

Thanks in advance.
