Quest 2 Game Information
game was released in 1987 using Sierra's AGI (Adventure Game Interpreter),
the same game engine Space Quest 1 uses. The game supports EGA,
CGA, VGA, Hercules Monochrome, MCGA (PS2) and Tandy graphics modes.
The game uses a maximum of 16 colors, a screen resolution of 160
X 200 pixels, requires a whopping 256K and has optional joystick
support. When playing the game, you hear the "music" through
your computer's internal speaker. Apple and Amiga users had improved
sound and soundeffects; 3 simultaneous tones instead of 1. You can
use the parser interface to insert commands such as "LOOK AROUND"
and "GET KEYCARD".
