Wumpus or Hunt the Wumpus is a Microsoft BASIC adaptation of the Mainframe game of the same name.

The player can move around a cave system of twenty rooms and must try to hunt the Wumpus monster with arrows. The player can fire five arrows into rooms to try to hit the Wumpus and move between the various rooms. The arrows will fly around corners and can possibly hit the player again. The player can also be attacked by bats and fall into pit traps.

Wumpus Mainframe Exploring more. I'm near the Wumpus, but also near a pit. After taking this screenshot, I fell into the latter.
