I'm in your interactive fiction list, and I have a slight update on my entry. I have now made my adventure games (Humbug and Jacaranda Jim) public domain and anyone can download the full versions (including online hints!) for free from http://www.grahamcluley.com

Cheers

Jacaranda Jim (v5.00)

Type:
Text only Written 1987-1993 by Graham Cluley.
Runs on:
Notes: Public domain (previously shareware (6)). Hints and other goodies for registered users are now available electronically.

Comments: Many players of Jacaranda Jim ask me what the point of the game is. Do you have to discover the secret of the Wild Women's teapot, uncover a vast treasure hoard or simply get a nice haircut for less than two bob? Well, just as in life the final objective of Jacaranda Jim is a mystery. However, it just might be a good idea to escape from Ibberspleen IV, and continue your journey back home to Earth.


Humbug (v5.0)

Type:
Text only Written 1990-1993 by Graham Cluley.
Runs on:
Notes: Public domain (previously shareware (9)). Hints and other goodies for registered users are now available electronically.

Comments: You, Sidney Widdershins, are sent to your Grandad's for the school holidays. Why is Jasper the dentist so desperate that Grandad should sell the manor? Why has Grandad hidden a time machine in the cellar? Why does the octopus insist on performing the ancient ritual of Wubble-A-Gloop with you? What doesn't Kevin the clockwork shark like about your haircut? What would YOU do with a trombone, a terrapin and half a pound of lard?
