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.
430 point version of the classic text-based game that started it all.
While this was not the first text-based computer game, it broke new ground and inspired generations of gamers and programmers alike.
Just a few of the memorable lines from the game to jog your memory and pique your interest.
- You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike.
- "MAGIC WORD XYZZY"
- A hollow voice says "PLUGH".
- A little dwarf just walked around a corner, saw you, threw a little axe at you which missed, cursed, and ran away.
- FEE FIE FOE FOO
- Rubbing the electric lamp is not particularly rewarding. Anyway, nothing exciting happens.
- A huge green fierce snake bars the way!
This implementation is a translation of Don Woods 430 point extension to William Crowther's original Colossal Cave Adventure. At this point, it pretty much stays true to the original.
You can change the font size of the text displayed on the screen. Use the preferences to choose between small, medium (default), large, and extra-large.
Text to Speech
You can have the game read aloud provided you have a Text to Speech library installed (Android 1.6+) and at least one English speaking locale. I don't know how useful this will be, but I'm enjoying it.
Also, it will warn you when you start the application if you have it turned on, just in case you are in a "quiet" area (meeting at work, library, etc.).
The Preferences menu item will allow you to turn on/off the feature as well as choose the locale you wish to speak.
This feature is not required to play the game, it is just a fun addition that I wanted to offer.
If your device supports voice recognition, you can now speak your commands to the game.
When you speak your command, the voice recognition engine will show you a list of words that it understood you to say, allowing you to choose the correct one from that list.
You can customize the behavior of this as follows using the Preferences menu option:
- Turn on/off the voice recognition capability.
- Direct it to take the best match to your spoken command and automatically use it.
- Direct it to show you up to 5 matches to your spoken command.
- Direct it to show you up to 10 matches to your spoken command.
It does take a little time learning how to speak to it so that it will understand, but as the voice recognition technology continues to improve, so should your experience here.
Also, you won't be able to use voice recognition for everything. The magic words, for example, aren't exactly something you can speak.
Finally, for those words that don't distinguish themselves from others in the first 5 characters, I've built a translator to help. For example, you speak "Northeast" and select it, the game will translate that to "ne" which it will understand. If you encounter any of these that I've missed, contact me and I will add them.
I don't know how useful this will be, but I'm enjoying it.
There are a couple on the developer's web site as well as some short ones to help you out if you need it.
There is now a menu option that will make it easier to contact the developer with any issues you may have.
This game has a lot of history behind it. Check out the developer's web site for more information.
This is The Abyss: a surreal work of interactive fiction where you struggle to survive and reclaim ownership of your mind. Explore the extensive world or try to find a companion to help you through the lonely world. Have caution, though: sometimes choices mean life or death.
The Abyss is an extensive and complex game in the style of choose-your-own-adventure stories. It tests the limits of the genre, and pulls together myth and fact to create an immersive and intricate world of motivation, struggle, and self-identity.
Tap on the red words to make choices and determine the course of your game play. Make choices and explore the world via these red links.
Tap the menu button in the top left-hand corner for the ability to restart, rewind, or share the game with others. The restart button takes you back to the menu of the story. After you have reached the "cave" passage, you can rewind your play back to this section to make different choices from this place. Swipe left to return to the game.
NOTE TO USERS
This is the mobile version of the same story, available online. Due to the nature of the app, quitting out of it does not save your progress. To play a version that will save your progress by bookmarking the page, visit this link: http://chooseyourownnovel.webs.com/abyss_final2.html
This is hopefully just one of many choose-your-own adventure stories to come! I hope you enjoy.

Guide a jumping and flipping dummy through 100 experimental bunkers. It is a physics-based 2.5D game.
Control the dummy by rotating it to the right or left. Make flips to charge for powerjumps. Jump over platforms and electrical tubes, through narrow holes and other obstacles.
You get quite a fresh experience playing this game. It differs from all the hits and has nothing similar with Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, Jewels etc. The game features real world physics, flip and jump animation, various tasks to complete in each level. Simple, it enthralls you the more you play.
The only game you might find a slight similarity with is Portal.

Check it out by playing this not-so-serious but addictive game!
Maybe this highly realistic simualtion will remind you of using the internet in the late 90s ;)
Attention: This game is NOT related in any kind to "Microsoft" or their products "Windows 95/98" and "Internet Explorer"
It's only a funny parody, which uses some of the nowadays classical designs/graphics/sounds from "Windows 98".
