Short and sweet impressions of a game I wrote about in 2003

Okay, I’ll admit it, I suck at text adventure games. I must have invested eight or nine thousand hours in Skullduggery: Adventures in Horror and I never made anything resembling progress in that game. I don’t know what it is, maybe I just don’t understand how things are supposed to work in games like that. I want an unlimited inventory. If I have to kill a Vampire Cocker Spaniel with a banana shaped bowl filled with lime Jell-O, then there should be a book or something telling me that. Things like that aren’t normally come to mind when I’m playing games.

That being said, there’s a place online where you can play a versoion of the ‘classic’ game that ‘hardcore’ ”gamers” still giggle about, Zork.
