Cloak of Darkness

This is an A-code implementation of the demo nano-adventure Cloak of Darkness.

See Roger Frith's site for implementations of the demo game in other Adventure authoring systems.


  1. This implementation version 1.3 adds an optional A-code module of debug mode tools, to illustrate A-code's flexibility. The module is included if present, while its absence is quietly ignored.
  2. This 14 April 2013 release uses the latest version of A-code and therefore non-DOS builds default to browser based display. Console display can be forced by using the -C (or /C) command line option. See the supplied README file for details.
  3. Depending on your browser setting, you may need to hold down the "shift" key while clicking on a link below, in order to download the relevant file, instead of viewing it. Viewing binary files is not much fun :-)

Linux executable A unified Linux console/browser build with command editing, defaulting to browser-based display. See the included README file for details.
MacOS package Mac OS X (10.4 upwards) universal build, defaulting to browser display, but permitting old-style terminal play as well. See the included README file for more details.
Windows installer Installer for a unified browser/console display executable ("console" meaning "DOS prompt")
Basic DOS build Zipped windows-unaware MSDOS executable with no command line editing. For use only on true DOS machines or under DOS emulators (e.g. DOSBOX).
