I'm having a couple of problems with The Great Escape that I don't
remember having when I played it long ago.
First of all, I recall having a full 50 moves once the snake bit me, but
after the first move, the program subtracts 21 moves instead of 1 in
both versions I have. Next, I noticed that even if I draw the high card
in a game against the mad gambler, I always lose, unless it's a tie, in
which case I win. And the strangest thing is the syntax error I get when
I'm trying to feed the bananas to the gorilla. The line is
7380 INPUT "DO YOU TRY TO FEED THE BANANAS TO THE GORILLA?":1$
but should actually be
7380 INPUT "DO YOU TRY TO FEED THE BANANAS TO THE GORILLA?";Q$
I was able to fix that line, and I should be able to fix the snake as
well, but I'm not sure what in the world could be causing the mad
gambler's issue, other than the fact that he's just gone totally mad
Does anyone have a disk with a working copy of this game? When I played
as a child, I didn't see any of these things lol. I played it on a disk
called Echo Games, which appears to be quite similar to egames, but had
a couple more things on it I think.
