Diamond in the Rough is a graphical adventure game that came out for the Coco 1/2 quite late in the Coco's life span. In it, you have to find the Tandy Diamond. The game is a fairly standard graphical text adventure, although it does have a nice smooth scrolling effect for the text area on the screen. Surprisingly, it doesn't have a title screen; just the standard Red/Blue/Hit reset color selection screen. It fits on two disks, and does have the option of selecting the drive # for the pictures disk, so if you have a two disk system, there is no need to swap disks. It does support the high speed POKE (it's written in BASIC, with ML subroutines for the graphical text).
