Man, i found the completely text based one a few years ago, took bloody ages to complete even though i'd read the books.

One of the hardest bits for me was taking the analgesic at the start... Hadn't heard any painkiller being called that before.

Not bad. Got the fish on the second button press, and got the vector plotter, but I never did get much further.

No fancy shmancy graphics back then. For sooth!
Anyway, it was like this: LOOK. 'You see ye flask.' GET YE FLASK. 'You can't get ye flask'.
And you'd just have to sit there and imagine why on Earth you can't get ye flask! Because the game's certainly not going to tell you.
