Quest for the Dragon Sword

Quest for the Dragon Sword was a text only adventure originally written on the Spectrum and then transferred across to the QL.

Even the loading screen was initially designed on the ZX Spectrum and then transferred to the QL by beeping them as binary values on the Spectrum and reading them in by PEEKing the QL's network port.

It uses Monty Python-esque humour, and you play the role of Claire in his quest to find the Dragon Sword.
