Trekboer intro and game screens

Trekboer is the 5th in the animated graphical adventure series that Mark Data Products put out in 1983-1985. It was also ported the IBM PC in CGA mode, but didn't sell as well on that platform. The Mark Data animated graphical adventure series were similar in concept to the Datasoft Animated Adventure Series (starting with Sands of Egypt), but had the distinct advantage of being small enough to distribute on tape (which also widened it's audience). This was the 3rd original game in the series by Stephen and Bob. In this science fiction game, one must scour the universe looking for the cure to a deadly virus that has struck earth, in the standard noun-verb adventure game format. Various things are graphically animated, such as robots, viewscreens, etc. It should be noted that this downloadable version was modified by Robert Gault to allow save games to disk, instead of the original cassette only.
