"Treasure Hunter ("Em Busca dos Tesouros", "Searching for Treasures" or "In Search of the Treasures" in a literal translation) is a game developed in Brazil, released in 1986 for the Sinclair ZX-81 and its Brazilian clones (TK-82C, TK-83, TK-85 and CP-200S). Inspired by the success of David Crane’s Pitfall, developed for Activision in 1982 and released for the Atari 2600 and other classic videogame consoles and microcomputers, EBdT was written in two years by then teenager Tadeu Curinga da Silva and sold by mail (in either cassette tape format or as printed assembly source code ready to be typed) by the first Brazilian microcomputer magazine, Micro Sistemas."

so it was originally a commercial game. this page has some more info...

Yes but I think it could be here now because of this
"After disappearing for 15 years, a cassette tape with the game was recovered by classic computer collector Kelly A. Murta. The game’s author, Tadeu Curinga da Silva, was located in 2006, and kindly allowed the game to be distributed through the Internet."
Well, whatever. It's a cool game anyway.
