4K Adventure is an interactive fiction game set in a fantasy universe. The player takes role the black dwarf Grimbis who needs to recover a magical orb which was stolen by elves. During the game, the player reads descriptions, explores the environment and solves puzzles by interacting with the environment by typing in verb-noun combinations.

There are overall seven actions available which partly can also be performed with alternate commands, e.g. the player can both "take" or "get" an item. In addition the game understands the four cardinal directions and allows to view the inventory and quit the game. There are 13 locations and 5 items.

Three other programs are distributed together with 4K Adventure. Clock displays the time (either in red, green or yellow) and Hardy and Blake display a random poem by Thomas Hardy or William Blake, respectively.
