This game created tension between me and my friend growing up... we would play competitively to beat the clock. One game ended with him punching me in frustration.
And this is a text adventure game. Amazing.
Great pacing (how the monsters would stay hidden for the first 10 minutes or so), randomness (placement of treasure, monsters, and even the player), and map.
I wish it were bigger. I wish every text game were like this. Or even that ONE other text game were like this.
The Bottom Line
One of a kind.
