Parody of the Hobbit, in which Bimbo Faggins sets the ball rolling for the events chronicled in "Bored of the Rings". Bimbo's quest is split into 3 parts.

Each part is loaded separately (instructions on the cassette side label) and data can be saved from one part and loaded into the next to progress through the game.

You can move backwards as well as forwards through the parts. Commands can be typed in English (eg. OPEN THE ROUND GREEN DOOR) but may be shortened to a simple verb+noun format (eg. OPEN DOOR). To chat to characters enter the command, TALK TO (name of character), followed by HELLO or whatever profound utterance you feel would be appropriate.

Other somewhat useful commands are - RAM SAVE & RAM LOAD - saves a game position to buffer in memory and reloads the previous saved position. GRAPHICS ON & GRAPHICS OFF - switch the pictures on and off (Amazing!). TEXT - redescribes a location without redrawing the picture. QUIT ends the game.
