Adventure Construction Set - Complete 2023 Walkthrough

Post by Baber64 »

Adventure Construction Set is a Dungeons&Dragons RPG gaming system for the Commodore 64, written by Stuart Smith and released by Electronic Arts in 1985. I have made game modules for my own entertainment since 1993 (thirty years!), and want to share my love of the game system.

Download includes: Adventure Construction Set .d64 game (floppy disk sides 1+2), ACS Manual(Apple ][ version), and 17 Jadeworld game modules that I created (You must load the ACS game system to play). I use the CCS64 emulator, but any will do to play these game modules in Windows or Linux.

New for 2023 is my video series of walkthroughs explaining how to set up, construct, or simply play the Adventure Construction Set games I created set in the Jademan kung fu comics world (think Street Fighter II):

ACS1 - Why Adventure Construction Set matters


ACS2 - How to Play Adventure Construction Set


ACS3 - How to Construct in Adventure Construction Set


ACS4 - Secrets of Adventure Construction Set


ACS5 - Standalone Game 'The Blood Sword' walkthrough


ACS6 - Electric Gate (conclusion to the series)


The manual states that computer AI characters in the game cannot step onto special (magic) spaces or pick up magic items or weapons. I discovered a means of inducing your computer adversaries to break this rule, and the game correctly interprets what happens when they step on a magical effect. In my videos I share how to generate these secret abilities, not bad for a 1985 Dungeons & Dragons style RPG gaming system!

Adventure Construction Set has been a labor of love for me from 1993-2023. Thanks to Stuart Smith for designing ACS and Electronic Arts for publishing it almost 40 years ago.

You're welcome. I just felt like I was the only one playing this in 2023 and wanted to show people how to use the ACS system...

Took me awhile, but I played through all of my ACS modules again. Finished "The Force of Buddha's Palm 5" last night.

A personal obsession, but probably the nicest thing I've worked on as a hobby over the years...
