    ...a locked door. To the left is a chest of drawers. You hear footsteps ascending the stairs.

    What do you want to do now?


    Don't you just love those old text adventures!? One of my favourites was Lords Of Midnight. Here's the good news, somebody great has converted them all to Java!

    You can play them all online here! Have fun!

    No I thought they were crap and I wasted my money on the Hobbit for the Spectrum 48k. :)

    Each to their own though. :)

    I used to play a few but I just ended up typing **** off when it said what do you want to do now or if you typed kill a bunch of people it never had an answer,

    Hehehe I'm no stranger to that either. One of my personal faves was along the lines of "have it off with the princess" to which the answer would be "i don't know how to do that" (some of them were a bit clever though and you'd get a chuckle out of the responses they'd throw back).

    Ahh the joys of those wonderful commands. I never tried 'Eat Your Own Head' though. Might have to give that a try and wait for the results.

    The worst thing about those games though is the lack of save game options. You'd get about 900,000 hours in to the game and you'd be at a scene such as this:

    It is 3am. Tired from your trek through the mountains you walk in to the Inn looking for a bed for the night. Suddenly a man wielding an axe dashes towards you from across the bar room floor. What are you going to do!

    And you type something like 'Kill man' and it says:

    I don't know how to do that. You are now dead. Game over.

    After 572,304 attempts you find out you were supposed to type:

    Examine chest hair

    Or something as ridiculous as that which you'd never get in a million years. And with no save game it's right back to the start for you my old son!
