4 Mile Island Adventure: Update



4 Mile Island Adventure, not to be confused by another Basic adventure for a recent programming contest (in the 2000s) of the same name, was a text adventure made by Owls Nest Software for TRS-80 Color Computer and MC-10 in 1983. Ported the Coco version to MC-10. Made some changes in the save game routine. In addition to the object list of locations, it now also saves the following variables:
F,G,CF,TB,GB,CA (# of objects being carried), RT (reactor temperature), YO (present location), DO,NOT,DR,M
This means that you don't start fresh every time you save and re-load a game, which makes the game more challenging (as there is a countdown to meltdown).

Brief Outline:
The 'impossible' has happened! This area was devastated by a severe earthquake. The reactor has been severely damaged. The plant has been deserted. Only you can save the area from a major disaster! Your goal is to achieve a cold shutdown of the reactor at Four Mile Island. Alternative? Death!
