Adventure

Old-school, text-mode, adventure game!



If you like reading adventure, fantasy, or "Choose-your-own-adventure" books, you're going to love this game!

This text-based adventure game includes over 75 unique locations, dozens of items, and hundreds of words in its vocabulary.

The game was inspired by Infocom's Zork. While not the same, it borrows from its ideas.

I hope you enjoy playing this as much as I did making it!

Command me using simple sentences:

GO NORTH
OPEN DOOR
OPEN DOOR WITH KEY
HIT NAIL WITH HAMMER
PUT CUP IN CASE
etc.

Think: VERB OBJECT PREPOSITION ITEM

Typing "OPEN THE DOOR" is the same as "OPEN DOOR."

Don't type adjectives. For example, if there is a "RUSTY NAIL" on the ground, type "GET NAIL" instead of "GET RUSTY NAIL".

Some special commands have only one word:

HELP or ? - See a short list of commands
I or INVENTORY - See what you're carrying
N or NORTH - Go north
S or SOUTH - Go south
E or EAST - Go east
W or WEST - Go west
U or UP - Go up
D or DOWN - Go down
LOOK - Look around
QUIT - End the game

Spelling counts!

It really helps to draw a map as you explore.

Here is a map to get you started:

Version 1.3 fixes a few bugs. Nothing major. Enjoy.
