Looking For Old Adventure Game [Escape From Dinosaur Island]

Post by Frodo »

I remember having a demo \ shareware adventure games many years ago. I would love to play it again, but I can't remember what it was called.

Details are a bit sketchy, but does it ring any bells for anyone?

•It was adventure game, in first person view.
•Probably made around 1991.
•It was mouse controlled.
•It was based in a research station (I think). And you had to find out what happened to everyone in the building, cos they are all missing.
•It was still pictures, which took up most of the screen. And I think directions (that you clicked on) and inventory were shown at the side.
•First screen, as you approached the building, showed a tall wire fence, with a gap to enter, then the building behind it.
•There was a tall dinosaur in one screen. If you weren't prepared to deal with it, then it killed you. And no, it's not Jurassic Park.
•There was a forcefield at one point. If you didn't turn it off from inside the building, the forcefield would electricute you.
•There is an abandoned car that you had to search. But I don't remember what was in the car.

That's all I remember at the moment. Any help is appreciated.

No, L-Zone looks much too spacey\sci fi. And the graphics are too good. :(

Thanks for trying though

You absolutely positive its not Jurassic Park? The NES version sounds very tight with your description

I'm sure it's not Jurassic Park. I've never even had an NES :blah:

I made a mock-up of how I remember it. It looked something like this:
