Still on the adventure trail but now to sunnier
climes. Fancy a trip to Florida, even if only in your imagination?
BEACHCOMBER is set on a wide sandy beach in the Sunshine State. Seagulls
overhead, waves rolling in, kids splashing in the surf and sunbathers
everywhere. You can feel the soft sand under your feet the sun beating
down on your shoulders and the ocean breeze against your pale face.
Smell the salt air! Squinting in the bright sunlight you decide to check
things out and get your bearings. You are barefoot and wearing a T-shirt
and shorts with pockets but that is just about all you know as you
decide to head up, or down, the beach. What will await you on this
idyllic holiday? Will you discover Disneyworld or something much more
sinister? Once you have finished discovering the joys (or otherwise) of
sunny Florida you can deprive yourself of almost everything in
OVERHEARD! Here you start in a prison cell with stinking straw on the
floor and a small barred window. If you move next door you will find an
old man with a straggling beard and tom tunic and a chain hanging from
the ceiling. The obvious thing to do is get out, but how? The old man
does not seem to want to talk to you and pulling the chain seems to
produce only a distant crash. What is going on? Can you make it out?
