Here are several Macintosh versions of the original Adventure game that spawned Interactive Fiction.

The first Mac port was from L. W. James and Associates, who sold their MS BASIC version for $29.95 mail order in 1985. It was later made $10 "honorware" in 1990, which is the copy archived here. An image of the 1985 disk would still be appreciated.

fanclub, downloads, maps rendered via CAD pen "plotters":

This download says the collection does not (will not?) include
z-code versions, which is a legit alternative to these old questionable apps. Should there be another page for Adventure in z-code, playable using Zoom, MaxZip, infinity, etc. There's over a dozen versions of CCA in the IF Database...

So there's a set of 4 unrelated ".dsk" files in this download, and like a lot of guys I have trouble using .dsk files. These are HFS not MFS but They show blank Creator/Type codes, and, I got all 4 to work by assigning Creator code "ddsk" and Type code "DDim", OSX (Tiger) begins working immediately. Then in OS9 I got error #-5000 (no access privileges) and needed to further adjust the file permissions using OSX Tiger, from initially read-only, to read/write - to make these .dsk images open in OS9.

screenshot says "We will upload a new quality ho", I'm still waiting for mine.

I had the DEC Fortran code for this (and had it running on a PDP 11/03 with 64K of RAM) and figured out how to play the perfect game (all treasures with a minimum of moves).
You are in a maze of twisty little passages...
