In mid 1986, Sinclair added a Games cartridge containing Breakout, Gun, Hunt, Pirate and Zfred to the standard software supplied with the boxed Sinclair QL.

Hunt (also known as Treasure Hunt) is a text adventure game written entirely in SuperBASIC. The aim of the game is to collect and deposit the seventeen objects of value. The downside of this is that unfortunately objects have to be specified in full in your commands.

The original version has been amended to include a MODE 8 command.
