Thanks to contributor Asphodel for flagging up that a C64 version of Apple classic Kukulcan was seemingly produced, thanks to this entry on a museum website:

http://gue.cgwmuseum.org/galleries/index.php?pub=3&item=12&id=2&key=0

Unsure if this was a mistake, we contacted the original author Michael Giltzow to ask if he ever started a version or might know more.   He didn’t develop a version himself, but very kindly checked his archives and found that American Eagle’s advertising indicated that a Commodore 64 version did exist.

Michael didn’t know who wrote it and has never seen a copy unfortunately.   He tells us that Mr Savatini who owned the company, did have programmers contracted to convert the code that Michael had written.   However, we are not sure if this was ever done or not.

Thanks to Peter Weighill, a number of scans have been added.

Could anything exist out there?   Is it even complete?    Early days overall for this conversion, but confirmation that it was indeed started!

    Found this in my C64 archive

    KULKULCAN IS A RELATIVELY SIMPLE ADVENTURE GAME, AND IT DOESN’T
    TAKE MUCH TIME TO SOLVE IT. TO ENJOY THE GAME IN GREATER DEPTH,
    PUT “H” AT ANY LOCATION AND FIND OUT SOME HISTORICAL INFO ABOUT
    THAT PLACE.

    TO BEGIN WITH, SKIP THE INTRODUCTION BY TYPING IN A “2”. NOW GO “N”, “N”,
    ”LOOK CRACK”, “TAKE BEANS”, “N”, “GIVE BEANS” (IN EXCHANGE FOR A PADDLE),
    “S”, “S”, “W”, “LOOK SKULL”, “TAKE BUTTERFLY”, “W”, AND “LOOK BOOK”.
    THE BOOK GIVES YOU ONE PART OF A TORN RIDDLE THAT YOU NEED TO SOLVE THE GAME.
    NOW GO “N”, “WEAR CLOTHES”, “ENTER”, “MOVE VASE”, “TAKE KNIFE”, “S”, “S”,
    “E”, “E”, “E”, “E”, “SIT DOWN”, “PADDLE CANOE”, “E”, “E”, “LOOK COLUMN”,
    “FIVE”, “LOOK BOOK”, “W”, “W”, “N”, “N”, “E”, “GO TOP”, “DROP
    BUTTERFLY”, “SACRIFICE BUTTERFLY”, “CE ACATL”, “W”, “N”, “GO TOP”.
    CONGRATS!!! YOU’VE SOLVED SIDE 1. NOW TURN THE DISK OVER AND BOOT UP SIDE 2 OF
    KUKULCAN.

    TYPE IN THE P/W “MALINCHE”. NOW “M” IF YOU WANT TO READ THE MESSAGE. TYPE
    “N”, “TELL STORY”, “TAKE CHEST”, “N”, “E”, “N”, “E”, “S”, “S”.
    YOU SHOULD NOW BE AT A TEMPLE. NOW GO “W”, “CLIMB STATUE (LOOK CAREFULLY AT THE
    MAP)”, “LOOK DOWN”, “TAKE CIRCLE”, “E”, “E”, “S”, “E”, “E”, “S”, “SWIM SHIP”,
    “OPEN DOOR”, “MOVE MAP”, “TAKE KEY”, “W”, “W”, “W”, “OPEN CHEST”, “TAKE
    CANDLE”, “LOOK HOLE”, “TAKE EMERALD”, “N”, “S”, “ENTER”, “LIGHT CANDLE”,
    “LIFT STONE”, “TAKE GOLD”, “E”, “S”, “GIVE GOLD”. YOU NOW SHOULD BE IN A JUNGLE.
    GO “S”, “E”, “S”, “W”, “W”, “N”, “M” (IF YOU WANT), “E”, “E”, “GIVE EMERALD”,
    “M” (OPTIONAL), “E”, “CLIMB UP”, “GIVE CIRCLE”, “M” (A LOT OF MESSAGES HUH?),
    “THIS MUST BE THE END”, AND THAT’S IT!!! YOU’VE SOLVED KUKULCAN

      That sounds promising. It might be a homebrew title that someone has done, but certainly worth checking out.
