Text-Based Multiplayer Shooter: Zork of Duty
November 8th, 2012
Halo 4 just came out, and there’s never any shortage of multiplayer shooters available, but if you’ve already topped the leaderboard, fragged everyone, topped the fragleader or boarded everyone – my expertise regarding the current state of multiplayer combat games is, shall we say, non-existent – why not have a go at this text-based multiplayer shooter?
This text-based multiplayer shooter is called… Text-based Multiplayer Shooter. It plays like the text-based adventure and role-playing games from the 70’s and 80’s. You type ‘go <direction>’ to move – e.g. go south – and then ‘fire’ to take a shot. As you can see I managed to hit a wall. Woohoo! Wall pwned! Here’s a more thorough look at the game courtesy of YouTuber CyBorg Plague (along with an ample dose of swearing):
It’s the most frantic way to learn how to touch type. You can play Text-based Multiplayer Shooter for free on Eigen Lenk’s website. Bring your imagination with you.
