Action Quest (Atari 8-Bit, Cassette) JV Software - 1982 USA, Canada Release
|Country of Origin||United States of America|
Description from the packaging.
Action Quest is a real time adventure game played with your joystick controller. You, represented as a ghost, move from room to room in an attempt to capture valuable prizes while eluding monsters and solving puzzles. Score is computed based both on prizes captured and elapsed time. Action Quest is entirely played as an action game, no keyboard input is required.
A complete game encompasses 30 rooms and 20 prizes, and prize capture is not always an easy task; a different technique or twist is involved in obtaining each one. Some require physical dexterity to reach while others can be acquired only through an intellectual problem solving path. Even some rooms are initially hidden from the player and must first be found before their prizes can be captured. Action Quest provides challenges both for fast action players as well as for those motivated by intrigue.
