Explore the "Enchanted Cave", the "Lost Mine", and the "Medieval Castle"! Find clues along the way and employ objects you find in order to escape and win!

Before 3D graphics were widely available for use in games, there existed a few classic adventure games that relied on words to spark the imagination of the player. When I was a young teenager, I was enthralled by such games as "Adventure" (it takes place in "Colossal Cave"), which was alive with magic at every turn. My cousin, who was also hooked on this game, and I would stay up late into the night inventing our own fictional worlds, and in the process, we created the three adventures included in this app.

Through "Explore", you can visit the magical world of the "Enchanted Cave", the "Lost Mine", and the "Medieval Castle". By using simple one or two-word commands, you can walk around, find items that will be useful later, and follow clues to help you escape and win. if you need some help getting started after selecting an adventure, just enter the "help" command.

By today's standards, these old "text adventures" may seem quaint, but many people still find them a challenge. And just like when reading a novel, to see, explore, and interact with your surroundings using only your imagination can be quite a cool experience!

    Excellent storylines, descriptions and usability. Took me back to the days of my youth spending countless hours sovling these kinds of games. Have only solved two of the mini-games so far (ie. Mine & Castle), so still working on Enchanted Cave at this stage. Would love to see more games of this kind especially classic Text and Graphics adventures from ~80's. Keep up the good work.

    I can tell I would love this game already. But, the problem is, it doesn't allow you to perform basic actions. Can't get past the first stage in ANY of the games. Frankly, it's bullshit. If someone would like to at least tell me how I can light my lantern in the cave WITHOUT using one of the TORCHES (THAT ARE ON FIRE), that would be great. Until I can at least get past the intro (which should INTR

    I don't understand what's going on here and how I should play this. The options are very few and without any warning whatsover the wrong choice can lead to your death.

    Great games, but need to have list of commands. My time is spent rewording commands and hoping for the best.

    For that old school text based adventure. This is a great free edition. A little lacking at first look, but once you get the hang of the vocab, then the fun begins :) Game on!
