Calixto Island Bob Withers & Ron Krebs / Mark Data Products 1984

A valuable museum treasure has been stolen; can you recover it? Calixto Island is a challenging puzzle with and occasional twist of humor. You'll visit a laboratory, a Mayan pyramid and you'll meet crazy Trader Jack - all in living color and exciting detail. This is similar to early Polarware and Scott Adams titles. While these company's games were reasonably successful on Tandy's CoCo computer, the IBM PC versions did not achieve the same level of success. While the graphics are quite good at the time, the parser is quite primitive. The games make up for this with well-written plot, fun characters, and some clever puzzles. Bob Withers, co-creator of these games now offers them free and their source codes as well.
