This page is a tribute to my favorite classic game, Tunnels of Doom. My parents bought me a TI-99/4A in the early eighties. It was my first computer, and while I used it for education and basic programming, I got the most fun out of it playing games. While shopping in KMart one day, I went into the electronics corral, where they had the Vic20, Atari, and TI stuff. I convinced my Mom to buy Tunnels of Doom, or ToD as it is called in Classic Gaming circles. My friend George and I spent many hours on the Quest of the King, looking for Touchstones, Orbs of Power, and fighting Orcs, Imps, and Kobolds.
