Description

Spellcasting 101 is the first in a series of risque adventures from the mind of Steve Meretzky of Leather Goddesses of Phobos fame.

This textual liaison pits you as Ernie Eaglebeak, a student at Sorcerer University who finds himself caught in a possible Doomsday situation. Seduce the women and have fun along the way. There are many women with little clothing, although no actual nudity. The game is loaded with college type jokes (eg: Join the famous Tappa Kegga Bru or I Phelta Thi).

The game play was a development of the parser based text adventure typical of the Infocom games but included graphic images that changed as the puzzles were solved and the game progressed.

Trivia

gwcheat

If you managed to wade through the entire file VOCAB.DAT, one word that would snatch your attention, would be "gwcheat." "Gwcheat" is generally an all-purpose cheat that is often never mentioned (even in the hintbook), and the usage is extremely simple. If there is an item that you know of (one that exists, but one that you don't own), simply type: "gwcheat [item]" and the item will be yours.

However: Interestingly enough, if you use "gwcheat" to ask the parser to do something frustrating and mind-numbingly impossible, it will tear its electronic hair out, and eventually will freak and hallucinate. For instance, if you're riding the surfboard on the high seas, and you type "gwcheat surfboard", the picture on the screen will change into all sorts of colors, and will lock on you.
