Partial walkthru of the text only adventure released in 1984 for the Spectrum and C64 and updated/converted for the CPC in 2016 by ESP Soft.
First we'll have a look at the (original Spectrum?) loading screen for Part 2 of the adventure before resetting and looking at the cracking loading screen for Part 1 and then continuing on with a little gameplay.

Hi Peter.
I agree, that part 2 loading screen was almost certainly created for a speccy, going by the black edges separating different colours.
