Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

Here is one of the games I have finished writing. It is based on the original Hunt the Wumpus game from the early 1970's, a classic BASIC game.

Mine produces much the same text and has the same basic structure as the original game, but I took the liberty of adding a graphic map to help guide the player. The map is mostly blank at the start but gradually fills in with room numbers and hazard indicators as the player explores.

I hope you enjoy it! Post replies if you find bugs.

It's a classic!!!  I'm glad to see the Wascally Wumpus is still up to no good!

Yay. I think Hunt the Wumpus was the first game I successfully got working from a type in (on an HP-85 typed in from David Ahl's Basic Computer book!).
