Quo Vadis is a 1984 action-adventure game released for the Commodore 64 by The Edge.

Gameplay[edit]

The object of the game is to explore a vast set of caverns and retrieve a scepter. Along the way the player must avoid (or shoot) various monsters and lava pits.

The playing area of the game extends over 1024 screen sizes, making it the largest arcade adventure/platform game of the time.[citation needed] A map of the playing area was published in the October 1984 issue of the magazine Personal Computer Games. Various "riddles" are hidden throughout the caverns. When the game was first released the publishers offered a prize to the first person who could complete the game and find and correctly answer all the riddles.[2]

The prize, a gold scepter valued at £10,000[3], was apparently never claimed. Some people did mail answers in but were told they had answered the riddles incorrectly.[2]

Reception[edit]

Quo Vadis received the Game of the Month award in the September 1984 issue of the UK magazine Personal Computer Games.[4]
