I want to buy a graphics adventure game for  my  Atari  800  (48K
with  1050  disk  drive).  What are some of the better ones?  I'd
like to know by Father's Day.  Thanks in advance.

There are no "good" graphic adventure games for the Atari computer. All
of the good adventures are text only and they are all from Infocom. I do
own about 8 graphic adventure games from Serria, Scott Adams, etc., but
they don't hold a candle to the "real" adventure that comes on a disk
from Infocom.

The above is the opinion of the author, and is correct.

bip.

	There is at least one good graphic adventure game for
    the Atari, and that is Ali Baba & the Forty Thieves.  I
    recommend it.
