Asylum - Anyone completed this game?

Postby Lyverbe » Wed Jun 15, 2016 12:52 am

I once played "Asylum" by making the map of it and wrote all the moves. Unfortunately, I never finished it. Recently, I decided to give it another shot and went a bit further but I'm once again stuck. Has anyone ever completed this game? There doesn't seem to be any walkthrough on the net.

Was it a text adventure? I'm sure that I recall a text game with that name. All I can remember about it was

Yes, the text adventure game (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpZfIbzcNYU). I think the 1981 version was monochrome for the TRS-80 only but the Atari 8-bit version came out somewhere in 1986 (I think). But the Wikipedia page offers a link to a walkthrough! Unfortunately, the link doesn't seem to work.
