Description of Castaway


          A ButtonWare Adventure is a fictional novel in which you
     are the main character.  You will be given a quest which you
     must successfully complete.  You may also be asked to
     collect treasures during your travels.

          Your PC will become your guide.  It will tell you what
     it sees and hears, and will obey your commands, (most of the
     time).  Although it speaks fluent English, it has trouble
     understanding long sentences.  Please limit your commands to
     not more than two words, with the verb as the first word
     (e.g.  throw ball).  If the computer does not know or
     understand a word, it will tell you so.  In that case, please
     use another word of similar meaning.

          We strongly advise you to build a map during your
     travels so that you can easily return to previously explored

          The computer will give you the following information at
     the start of each round of play:

          1.  A description of your current location.
          2.  Items that you can see at this location.
          3.  Directions in which you can move (n-north, s-south,
              e-east, w-west, u-up, d-down)
          4.  Treasures will be marked by an '*' before and after
              the word.

     You must then respond by typing the action you wish to
