(AKA Adventure) (AKA Land Adventure)




Adventureland was the first commercial text adventure game for a home microcomputer.

Adventureland was originally sold via the TRS-80 Software Exchange in SoftSide magazine. It was first advertised for sale in the January 1979 issue, which, because of the way magazines are dated, was probably in late 1978.

Notes from the Classic Adventure Solutions Archive: "This was also published as a BASIC type-in listing for the TRS-80 in SoftSide S-80 Edition. The Adventure Builder was in vol. 2, no. 10, July 1980, pp. 36-43, and the Adventure Interpreter was in vol. 2, no. 10, July 1980, pp. 44-48."

The BBC Micro conversion, by Brian Howarth and Cliff Ogden, was released in 1984.
