Aim of the game

Just like Lord of the Rings - drop the Ring into the crater of Mount Doom. It's slightly less serious about it though - the Fellowship of the Ring includes Fordo, Spam, Pimply and Murky...

Game play

BORED is an adventure game, so all the usual adventure conventions are adhered to - i.e. the usual commands such as N, E, S, W, INV, EXAMINE, LOOK and so on.


"Quite good"

A criminally underrated adventure game. BORED was one of the better Spectrum adventures, and is certainly one of the funniest!
