SO MUCH NOSTALGIA!!! I used to love this game when I was a kid! I've been trying to remember what the name was for years. Then it suddenly came to me when some friends and I were discussing old video games. Can you imagine my glee when I saw this!
A flawless retro gaming experience This was one of my favourite games when I owned a TI-99/4a and it has now made the transition to mobile in a stylish modern form that plays equally well on mobile phone as well as tablets. The graphics are higher resolution than the original and it even has a clever nod to the original TI-99 start up with the colour bar page when you start. One thing that hasn't changed is the jump scare you get when you either blunder into the Wumpus chamber or miss with the arrow. The jaws biting down on the player is spot on and missing from many remakes of this type. Another excellent game from TCKSOFT and again..it's well worth the single pound coin that this is on offer for given the amount my eleven year old self played the original back in the 1980s. When someone can turn out a complete remake of this quality in a couple of weeks it deserves to sell thousands of copies! Buy it and tell your friends! :)
Love it Perfect port of the game. Reminds me of all the Hurst wasted hunting wumpi (or campuses if you prefer) in my youth on the old TI994/a
Fun and nostalgic, but a couple of bugs prevent it from being 5 stars. Sometimes bats immediately carry you off, and the tallies give extra kills to your enemies.
PROGRAMMER FAIL: Glitch doesn't always allow a winnable game. Wumpus is blocked by a slime pit as the only means of access. Patch or my rating stays low. Classic throwback of the original TI-99 version but with different #s of caverns. One minor but irritating glitch - there is no bats sound warning of bats caves, bats are only supposed to be disturbed reentering a cave. However, occasionally a bat surprise attacks you immediately on entering. This glitch is frustrating since it comes with no warning or means to avoid it, and it occasionally tosses you into a pit or to the Wumpus. So it skews stats. I assume it is an easily fixed coding error and am hopeful for an update to patch it. Also, the cumulative stats don't always tally correctly to match the numbers.
I'm so mad!!! HOW in the world did I miss this awesome game before it came to Android?!?! Well, I'm not mad anymore, haha. This game rules!
