The Riddle of the Trumpalar

Navigate through: Apple II Software -> The Riddle of the Trumpalar, 800kb Apple II NSW Education Department

Presented here is a new disk image for The Riddle of Trumpalar.

From the title screen:

  • (C) 1990 NSW Department of School Education
  • Computer Education Unit (CEU)
  • Schoolware
  • Version 1.0
  • Project Coordinator – Eleanor Igoe
  • Programming – Peter Gummer; Adrian Brell; Paul Jenner
  • Illustrations – Perc Williar
  • Based on a novel by Judy Bernard-Waite by arrangement with Ashton Scholastic

It is tedious to play though – hint enter a number when it asks where to move as in number of steps north.

As far as I can tell this is a unique disk image and not available elsewhere.

Hardware capture: 800kb disk image on Floppy Emu in Apple II 3.5 mode, Smartport on Apple IIGS, boot to BASIC, PR#5 -> Capture in 1080p from Extron scaler then screenshots on Mac.  I do not know how to emulate an 800kb disk image in Apple II mode in an emulator on Mac so I had to use real hardware.  I discovered after recording everything that the aspect ratio was wrong so please excuse the slightly vertically compressed image.
