Labyrinth (Interactivision)

I am looking for a playable/full version of Labyrinth which is a Danish (or from another Scandinavian country) Amiga game.

The screenshot is from the unplayable intro-preview. After pressing a button it quits.

Any info (especially from Northern European) Amiga users would be welcome.

Thx...

I was a tv-show, with a famous dansih dj. I'm not sure it was a danish design, I think it was made in netherland. (don't remember). But it was transform into a computergame by a danish gamemag.
Released on c64 tape and disk, amiga and on pc.


Here is a link to danish page about the game

I'll have a dig through my disk collection to see if it isn't there by a strange coincidence. I still have the original C64 disk but I doubt that's going to do it now is it? Can't promise it's in my collection though.

I still remember the show though. Right afterwards they'd show benny hill.

The game hasn't got a randomizing path to the exit though. The questions may vary but wether the doors open or not is always the same.

Edit :
Sorry. Went over all my compilation disks and couldn't find one where it was included on.

Lightbulb Hey, I remember that TV Show!

What a coincedence! Last week I saw a 'I love the Eighties' TV-show on Dutch television which had a topic about 'Laybyrinth' in it!

It is played by two groups consisting of two contestants. The show is in fact a trivia-quiz. With every good answer you can move your Pacman-like sprite a number of positions in the maze. The main goal is to reach the centre. The group who finishes first, can play the unique finale.
In the finale a contestant is blindfolded and placed in the corner of a huge blue-screen carpet. He can only see the blue carpet, but the viewers and the other contestant can see him standing in a maze. The other contestant must guide him to the centre of the maze without touching the maze-walls.
It is hilarious watching the finale: "Forwardforwardforwardforwardforwardforward STOP! Onestepbackonestepback STOP! Goleftleftleftleftleft..." and so on.
What a great show it was...

I am eager to know how far the game matches the TV show.

This game was on Ebay 2 weeks ago:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....tem=3013166102

It didn't sell, so if you're really keen you could always email the guy and make him an offer. I have bought from him on Ebay before and had no problems. PM me if you're not an Ebay member and you need his email address.

Thank you all for this useful information and links related to this game. It seems Labyrinth was really a hit on Danish TV. The package on the Ebay photo remembers me a bit of of the (Amiga) TV show games by PCSL such as "Lingo" which btw still seems to be going strong on Dutch TV

I have contacted the Ebay seller and hope he will reply...

Dizzy, would be great if you could please make an ADF and a coverscan.



Lingo as just seen on the NED2 TV station.

Nice. BTW, is it copy-protected?
If yes, it might even make sense to make a WHD install of it.

I think it is, it don't have password-protection, so I think it have some knid of copy-protection, never tried to copy it, just recieved it a few month back.

But I have a pirat version of the game, i can make a adf out of this first, so you might try the game.
But it's only playable if you read danish, you need to answer some question.

If the Amiga version's layout of files is like the PC version all questions and answers are stored in a plain text file.

I'll see if I can't dig out the cover. It's doubtful though. I haven't seen that for a year. I seem to have lost half my C64 originals to god knows where. And the Labyrinth game was one of the first disk games we got, we got it with a subscription of Det Nye Computer (C64/amiga games mag)

As I can read German, Danish is very similar to it (just like Tim who can read German too, because he's Dutch )

Dutch and german have a lot more in common than German and Danish I'd say.

The guy selling the game on Ebay has replied. He charges 15.00$ including p&p. The problem is he only accepts Paypal payment which I do not have.
Is there an Amiga fan using Paypal who could help out? I would send any helper the money in advance and cash (in Euros) before you make the Paypal transaction. Please PM me if you can help.

We are all looking forward to it. Thanks. It's not so important that it is in Danish. At least in my case I am mainly after this game because of collecting purpose.

Thanks, would be fine if you can find it.

Agreed. I as a German can easier understand the Dutch channels. On Danish TV it is more complicated...

Now now, I was speaking of WRITTEN text.
That's something completely different, and miles easier.

Labyrinth in the zone

Taken from my original game.
The questions are not seperat, but are part of the game-file. If some-one is able to extract them, I will gladly try to translate them.

I don't think it's easy to playif you don't read danish (and german is not like danish)

I will return with some screengrabs where I try to explain how to play.

You are WRONG.
Or you are maybe unable to correctly estimate the mean difficulty to understand written (!) Danish from a German type like me, probably because you're not German.
It is SO easy, you won't believe it.

"spillerunder" = "Spielrunden" (playing rounds)
"Tast RETURN-tasten for at begynde" = "Taste RETURN zum ['für das'] Beginnen" (RETURN key to start the game)
"piletaster" = "Pfeiltasten" (arrow / cursor keys)
"terningen ar kastet" = the die is cast

So you're definitely barking up the wrong tree.
It IS somewhat easy, albeit not easy as pie. Understanding SPOKEN Danish is VERY difficult for me though, simply because the pronounciation ('d' at the end of a word is a special sort of sound [like 'stjerneskud'] that does not either exist in German or English language) is a lot different to the written words.
You also need to know English, though.

BTW: Thanks for uploading.

Strange. I'm having greater problems understanding written german than understanding spoken german.

And the questions are probably a bit harder in wording.
