In this assignment, students code a simple version of the classic “Adventure” game written by Willie Crowther in the early 1970s. Although the assignment itself uses a console interface, the opportunities for graphical extensions are enormous.

Many people have used adventure game assignments successfully. John Estell, for example, contributed a similar assignment to the 2002 “Nifty Assignments” collection (http://nifty.stanford.edu/).
