Original Version Gone - Sad

This was much better when it was just the original Colossal Cave game. It would have been nice to have kept the original 350 point game as on option.

4/5 stars

nice to have a free Adventure, but a little bit awkward

It's nice blast from the past to have Adventure on the iPhone/iPad, and with an external keyboard it's not too painful. It is inconvenient that I have to keep tapping the text entry box for each new command. There's some polish - the text descriptions slide in and there's a graphics background, but maybe in the spirit of the original, less would be more.

4/5 stars

I thought I had escaped the curse of Crowther long ago!!

I thought I had escaped the curse of Crowther long ago! Now I find to my horror that it has followed me to the iPad.

To those who remember the old Adventure game, this will be either a wonderful or horrifying blast from the past.

Nicely executed within the context of the Malmberg variant, it will consume those who love this type of puzzle game.

There is apparent bug with the plant, and some possible memory instability which I resolved with a reinstall.

I am truly glad that this experience has been brought to the iPad and happy that the tradition is being passed on!

My thanks to Shawn P. Stanley for making this available!
