I know I'm pushing the limits of Reality here. But many years ago I created a game for the TI 994/a Home Computer and place an add in Computer Shopper to sell it. I sold it for about $20 in the magazine around 1986-87 (I believe it was the summer time). I believe I ran the add for about three months. Also, if you have the original Computer Shopper Add for this (it was in the Classified section, small print) I would be willing to purchase a copy of that magazine from you as well.

If anyone has a copy of this cassette in working order, I would be happy to puchase it from you (can you believe that, make a profit on it after almost 15 years from the same guy who sold it to you!) Over the years, my master copy had become corrupted and unrecoverable.

I was about 16-17 years old when I wrote the game and it was actually pretty fun, I played it myself. The first professional program I ever wrote and I can kick myself for not securing a copy. The game was called "Tunnels of Zod" and was an Indiana Jones type of game in TI Extended Basic (Using Sprites). Three levels, each one uncovering various treasures. You had a cartoon character sort of fellow that rode elevators, jumped over foes and other obstacles too. The 3rd was meeting the Zod himself.

I will pay $100 for a working cassette/Diskette copy of this game (Original not required). I don't care how you obtained a copy of it! I am the original author of this game, I know I can't provide much proof here. But for those who purchased a copy, the package was shipped from Decatur, AL where I was living at the time (Towerview Apartments I believe). I require a screen shot of the game prior to sending you the money for the duplicate. Send it to the e-mail address identified above if you would be so kind.
