Venture


It's a remake of the original game Venture from Exidy on the ColecoVision console in 1982 with extra's!
Roam the dungeons with your hero "Winky", and rob them clean of all the treasures.
Watch out as the dungeons are filled with monsters and all kinds of traps.



I added new levels, new traps, new enemies and a much harder difficulty!

Good luck! (you'll need it)

Notes (Windows)
* Probably works on most windows systems
* On some Windows10 systems, Windows will ask to install "directPlay". It's not neccessary, so you dont have to install it!
* On some Windows10 systems, the window is not focussed when starting up the game, so the keyboard controls dont seem to work. Just focus on it by clicking on the window with the mouse, and all will be fine :)
* If you're running this game under Vista and you're experiencing stuttering gameplay, you need to change some settings on the file. Click here for the settings.

Notes (Android)
* Tested on OUYA and Nvidia Shield TV
* Could also work on other Android systems
* NO touchscreen support, only keyboard, gamepad and joystick support!

Gameplay notes
* Use arrow keys to move player
* [space] to use weapon
* Z and X to change weapons (if weapons are available)
* Some gamepads are supported (I used a Logitech Cordless Rumblepad 2). You can also use "Joy2Key" to map keyboard buttons to your gamepad!
