Latest Games Reviewed: Adventure Construction Set

Author: Manu - Published: 24 May 2021, 5:04 pm

Adventure Construction Set (ACS) is not a game, but a game maker tool, created by Stuart Smith originally for the Commodore 64 in 1984, then ported to Apple II (1985), Amiga (1986), and MS-DOS (1987).

Despite the title, ACS does not produce graphic adventures; instead, you can build top-down, tile-based RPGs, like Ultima IV. It supports turn-based battles, melee and ranged attacks, spells, shops, and much more.

ACS was the best-selling Electronic Arts title in 1985 and influenced Bethesda when they created The Elder Scrolls Construction Kit. The construction set includes two games/tutorials: Rivers of Light and Galactic Agent (the latter only in the Amiga version of ACS).
