Art D's Next Batch Adventure
by Arthur DiBianca

Art D's Next Batch Adventure is a MS-DOS interactive fiction game written with Batch and is © 1997 by Arthur DiBianca. This is the second in a series of games. Please play Art D's First Batch Adventure before this one.

In this simple limited-command-set adventure game, you continue your adventure, starting in a sunny clearing with the King's word from the last adventure. Soon you will find a solid gold torch and explore a cave.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Version 1.1 of the game. Patreon note: This walkthrough and the other two walkthroughs for the games in this series were published in a 3-for-1 deal, as if they were three parts of one game.

SPOILERS AHEAD. Reading a walkthrough prematurely can sometimes diminish one's enjoyment of an interactive fiction game. Please make an honest effort to play the game before reading this walkthrough.

Sunny clearing

This game continues from where Art D's First Batch Adventure left off, more or less. You'll need a special word from that game.

Since the game doesn't understand X for EXAMINE, you can use L, the abbreviation for LOOK, instead, to examine things.
