Blade of Blackpoole
by Sirius
(Box package)

A fantasy quest centered around a magical sword, Sirius' Blade of Blackpoole was one of the earliest non-Infocom multiple-sentence parser adventures. This advantage was offset by a hideous inventory-management system, which permitted the player to carry no more than five items at a time. Employs the same interface as Sierra's and any number of early graphic adventures: Hi-res pics with a four-line space for text at the bottom.

The box package, a later release, seems the easier to find. At least Critical Mass, and Gruds in Space exist in this package, though I can't confirm any other Sirius titles.
