Venture 2 (playable in-browser)
Lafe Travis Fredbjornson's fan-sequel to the 1981 arcade game Venture - an epic and extremely varied game pushing the limits of the Klik & Play game maker program - now playable in-browser.
The official strategy guide (also including screenshots, cheats and locations of extra lives) is here (and archived here).
From the readme file:
"In a Dungeon of Olde there are Treasures to Gain in Chambers midst Creatures of Doom. Pass Quickly though Halls where Green Monsters do Reign; your arrows Pierce Only in rooms."
The evil wizard Exidy has captured Winky's true love Pinky. Winky must travel through the nine worlds to Exidy's enchanted castle to save her!
Winky has climbed deep inside a dungeon laden with incredible treasures, but guarded by terrible monsters. Equipped with only bow and arrows, he seeks the treasures as the monsters close in. Guide him through the dungeon rooms... but don't stop to count your treasure until you're through!
After you've started your game, the treasure block screen appears. Question marks in the screen are replaced with treasures as you earn them. Next, Winky appears in the first dungeon world.
While Winky is in the hallway, he appears as a small dot. Beware of the treacherous Hall monsters that search for him. Winky can't eliminate the Hall Monsters, so he must try to avoid them! If you shoot at them, you'll only make them angry!
Move Winky into one of the dungeon rooms to capture the treasure within. But each room is infested with monsters. Fire arrows at them for points. Just be careful - if Winky even touches a monster, living or dead, he will be elminated.
EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED! In some rooms, monsters or walls may appear or disappear at special times. In other rooms, Winky will have special powers such as flight, jumping or swimming; use fire button 2 in these instances. Some rooms may require Winky to get more than one treasure. In other rooms, the doors will not appear until Winky performs a certain task.
Try to capture the treasure and eliminate the monsters quickly. If Winky stays in the room too long, a Hall Monster appears and tracks him down. If you can shoot the hall monster enough times, it can be destroyed, but beware of its friends! After you seize the treasure, you can go to victory in another room!
Enter all the rooms on a world. Once you have seized the treasures and left the room, you may never return. When you have captured all the treasures on a world, you'll be transported to the next world to even more dangerous adventures.
