The Pascal conversion of Eamon is a conversion of the standard Applesoft BASIC-based Eamon adventure game system to Pascal, created by developer Paul Stadfeld (aka "Mensanator"). Thomas Ferguson in a September 2012 post on the EAG blog writes that he discovered references to the system and the adventures written for it at mensanator.com and contacted the author for details. Though Stadfeld wasn't able to provide the system or adventures, he was able to offer some descriptions of the project which was built using the Turbo Pascal software development system.

Adventures

On his website and in his correspondence with Ferguson, Stadfeld identified three adventures he created for the system:

The adventure software is not available but Stadfeld provides short descriptions of each.

Free Pascal version

In a comment on a 2011 post at the EAG blog, visitor wdk_Dave describes a second port of Eamon to Pascal, one he was developing using Free Pascal that featured improvements such as more complex monster AI, the ability to follow monsters, steal items, and more. Whether the port was ever completed or released is unknown.
