I was gripped the moment I entered the red blobby cave.
The detail environment captivated me, I was so enthralled in the adventure that I did not notice that I was playing until 12, endlessly grinding quests in the detailed world. When finally given the chance, I decided to embark on my own to find a whole new depth of gameplay to await me.
Easy 5/5.

Teary-eyed, still chuckling... I didn't even see the punchline coming.

Wins in humor per hour spent (both playing and development).

Short and straight to the point! I wasn't aware that you could export inform to flash. I'll have to look into that. ;]

tnelsond: While "use" is pretty much the verb of choice in graphical adventures, it is actually a very uncommon verb in text adventures because it is so vague.

alexlarioza: Though there is at least one Flash interpreter for zcode (which is the simpler/smaller of the formats Inform can compile to), "DangerousII" is actually running in Parchment, which is JavaScript, not Flash: http://code.google.com/p/parchment/

In recent versions of Inform 7, making a webpage that uses Parchment to play your zcode game is as easy as saying "Release along with an interpreter." If you're looking at making a game that's too big to compile to zcode, a javascript glux interpreter, called Quixe, is in beta now, though it does not yet support images/sound. So yes, if you're interested in interactive fiction, there are plenty of options and you should definitely look into it!

Fond memories of Colossal Cave. Points for nostalgia, and for good humor.

Haha, fantastic concept! Some art to accompany the text could've worked.

Nice word play. An online highscore would make it perfect!
