Description of Hunt the Wumpus

Advertisement
Right here is a very accurate remake of the classic Texas Instrument game of the same name made back in 1980. That game was based on the very popular 70s text adventure (also of the same name). If you don't believe me, do a search on it! You'll even find some fan-made java versions. The graphics and sound might seem a *little* dated, but if you want state of the art visuals, download Adventures of the Retarded Goat 3D or something.

Anyway, the story is you're in a white cave with blue walls, and somewhere inside is the deadly, hungry Wumpus, and it's your goal to kill him before he makes a snack out of you. I didn't supply any kind of instructions or tutorial in the game itself, so I'll try to explain it best I can here.

How to play:
After watching the awesome intro and choosing a difficulty level, you begin in a random room of the randomly generated cave. You move from room to room with the arrow keys, and use the hints in the cave to pinpoint where the Wumpus is. A red circle (pool of blood) means that the deadly Wumpus is no more than 2 rooms away, while a green room means you are 1 room away from a slime pit (which will also kill you upon entering). The harder the difficulty level you choose, the more twists and turns there will be in the level, which makes it harder to calculate where a pit or the wumpus will be. When you think you know where the Wumpus is, press the Q key to ready an arrow, then the direction you want to fire in. If you're right, you'll kill the Wumpus and score a point. But since you only have 1 arrow, if you miss the first time it's lunch time for the Wumpus!
