Valley of the Minotaur

Written 1984 or before.
Runs on:

Comments: It was your basic find-the-hidden-treasures type of game (the treasures were then deposited in the phone booth from where you start the game), but with a requirement to slay the minotaur in order to complete the game. The game may have been a tad buggy, but I couldn't say for sure. There was a fountain with a pool of acid in which there was a black pearl and that it was possible to retrieve the pearl with a pair of glass gloves. The game appears to have a direct rip-off from Zork I in that there is a giant bat which will deposit you in various locations around the game. I believe the parser was strictly verb-noun. This might have been some shareware non-commercial thing.
