Graphic Adventures

Although during the 1980s text adventures were the main stay of anyone wanting to play adventure games (otherwise known as interactive fiction), the Sinclair QL saw some of the earliest graphic adventures, where control was through the joystick or cursor keys, rather than you having to enter commands via the keyboard, which then depended on the adventure being programmed to be able to understand simple phrases.

The following Graphic Adventure games were available for the Sinclair QL and can often be found second hand. Some are still available to purchase new from RWAP Software and other websites.

It is also worth checking out the collection of adventures avaiable from the Sinclair QL Homepage as many former commercial titles have been released as freeware by the copyright owners.
