  • Name of house puzzle Atari game!?

    Hi can anyone help with the name of this Atari game... My dad and I used to play it in the late 80's, and my partner still has an Atari and I'd like to buy it to play again!
    It was set in a house, not a haunted house. It was a puzzle type game where you had to try and find your way out of the house using objects you found in different rooms. Writing would come up on the screen telling you why you couldn't do something or what was in the room etc. It was shown as 1st person so there were no characters. We could never get further than a certain room but it was fun!

      Thanks but no it wasn't that. It showed just 1 room on the screen at a time

        Doesn't ring a bell, you may find it here though.

        Is it Escape From the Mind Master?

          Thanks, that wasn't it, but it was more along those lines. I definitely remember the room we couldn't get out of was a colourful room with a big chest in it. I think you used a key to open it, and there were other objects inside maybe.

              Thanks, but no, it wasn't that. I don't think it was a haunted house, just a normal house, but with not a lot in it. It wasn't shown from above. It's hard to remember details!

                Was it for the Atari 2600, or the Atari home computers?

                  Maniac Mansion for the Atari ST?

                    Thanks for the replies. It was an Atari 2600 I'm pretty sure. The maniac mansion looks the closest to it yet. But I'm convinced there were no people in it, no characters, YOU saw the rooms as the person. The graphics were also more basic from what I remember. The game came free with the Atari so I'm told, along with an F1 game, Leaper, and some others. So it can't be that rare surely! Very strange, unless my memory is just very wrong! I'm quite good at remembering stuff like that though!

                      Try cloak of death for the atari 800, seems about right to me.
