New Retro Release

Binary Legends Presents
The Marlo Files

A Binary Legends Retro Release for the Commodore 64!

Get it on the Binary Legends download page:

This is a compilation of two text adventure games. Join Sammy Marlo, Private Eye as he searches for stolen paintings in the Museum Caper and goes on the trail of a missing scientist in Dial M for Marlo.

These two games were created with the Questwriter text adventure creator.

Full instructions on how to play the games are included on the disk. Also In case you get stuck while playing the games, full solutions are also included.

To control the pointer in the menu program, you can:
1) Use a 1351 mouse in Port 1. (Winvice users can press Alt-Q to emulate a 1351 mouse)
2). Use a joystick in Port 2.
3). Use the cursor keys to move and use the space or return keys to click.

The version of Questreader on the disk has been patched to enable it run from any drive - so the Marlo Files will run from any Commodore drive number.

This is a free-ware release.

In order to play the Marlo Files, you will need a C64 emulator. I recommend VICE.

You can download VICE from:
