Colossal Cave Adventure

Here, the first "adventure" game continues to be ported to the latest and greatest platforms as a "hello world" exercise of sorts. Not much has changed for this game in the past 35-odd years, so to briefly reiterate: the player directs the actions of a spelunking cave-adventurer through a primitive text parser, overcoming monsters, traps and strange obstacles with the use of handy inventory items and head-scratching magic words. This version is a very faithful reproduction, maintaining the gold standard of 430 points to achieve after Don Woods had souped up Will Crowther's sun source. Android being what it is, some relatively new functionality for this text adventure is the option of using speech synthesis and voice recognition to verbally spar with the game.
