Description

Here is the Adventure game that captivated a generation of early hackers.

This is a text-based thinking game that encourages critical thinking and logic. No animated characters here. As with a book, much of the environment is created by the imagination of the reader.

In the '70s, a pioneer Internet programmer created the first computer adventure game for his daughters in his spare time based on his experiences as a caver in Kentucky.

It spread quickly across the fledgling computer network where untold hours of programmer time were lost exploring its depths.

Subsequently enhanced by a researcher at Stanford's Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, it is still the definition of the interactive-fiction genre.

"Somewhere nearby is Colossal cave, where others have found fortunes in treasure and gold, though it is rumored that some who enter are never seen again."

"MAGIC IS SAID TO WORK IN THE CAVE…"

iAdventure is the iPad re-creation of this seminal game.

• Presented in "glass teletype" style to capture the original feel.

Great game. It IS the original.

:
Requires thinking though. Not something you can just play while waiting in line somewhere for a minute or two.
