A downloadable game for Android

This is a remake of the 1982 Spectrum text adventure Planet of Death.
Re-designed "non text" user interface uniquely for Android.

[From the original cassette inlay]

Adventures are games in which you explore and discover a strange 
new world without leaving the comfort of your chair. The computer 
will act as your puppet, eyes and other senses.

You instruct the computer using short sentences, usually 
verb-noun, and providing the computer understands it will obey 
your command. If the computer does not understand, then try 
re-wording the command.

In each location you may find objects which you can manipulate 
and use in further locations to help you progress on your 
adventure. When entering your command you may use the DELETE key 
to erase any letters.

In this adventure you find yourself stranded on an alien planet. 
Your aim is to escape from this planet by finding your, now 
captured and disabled, Space Ship.

You will meet various hazards and dangers on your adventure, some 
natural, some not - all of which you must overcome to succeed.


Some parts of the story or solution have been changed ever so slightly for one of 2 reasons:
1) Fit the game engine.
2) Make it a little tougher so you can't just look up the solution online. 

I'm not claiming any intellectual property for this game other than the game engine and the time and effort spent writing it.
The original game itself was published by Artic Computing Ltd in 1982.
