am stuck in a game what do I do?
If you are playing one of Scott’s Classic Adventure games then
download the hints from the download page.
If you are stuck in
Return to Pirate’s Island 2 then use
the built in help engine. The help engine is designed to give hints (or
solutions if requested) to all puzzles in the game. If you are really really stuck and frustrated with a puzzle then email
Scott at email@example.com with
your problem. Please also describe how you tried to use the help engine and
where it failed you so Scott can improve the game’s help engine.
Who is Scott Adams?
Scott was the first
person to put an Adventure game (also known as Interactive Fiction) on a
personal computer. This was in 1978 and the computer was a 16k Radio Shack
TRS-80 model I. Scott went on to write over a dozen different adventure
games for the personal computers of the 1980s. He is credited with starting
the entire multi billion dollar a year computer game industry. Many people
have written Scott and explained how his early games help led them into a
career in computers today. Scott is 67 years old in 2019 and living in
SouthWest Wisconsin. He is married and has 5 children and 10 grandkids.

long has Scott be playing computer games?
Let see I have been playing computer games from the time
before there were any. I had to write them if I wanted to play them.
Actually first I had to build my own computer THEN write the games.
My first home computer was a Sphere. (they came out same time as Altair)
It was a kit.
I built and designed a graphic video card for this machine so I could
then write a tank war game for it. I also built two hand controllers. The
card and game also won the first annual "What do you use your Sphere
I also remember putting Star Trek on the tracking monitors of a SDC
RADAR station I worked at downrange. I used to play after hours when they
were not tracking satellites. I had to use the tracking monitors as
everything else was Teletype 35.
I guess you can say I really love computer gaming.
