|Dungeons of Daggorath|
One of the best (and best selling) games that Radio Shack ever sold for the Coco. Hugely innovative for its time, Dungeons of Daggorath was a real time dungeon romp, with 5 levels, and sound effects far beyond any other such game of it's day. You had a real-time heartbeat that was affected by battle, how fast you ran, when you were attacked, etc., and monsters actually got louder the closer that they got to you. It had such a huge influence that a PC port has been done, and entire webpages have been devoted to it. It was release in cartridge format in 1982, and the entire program was crammed into an 8K ROM.
Douglas Morgan, one of the original authors, has mentioned that a larger, more sophisticated version was originally done, but it had to be compressed to fit on a cartridge. It is too bad that the original version has not survived...
