A few example puzzles from MicroMUD: There are two items X and Y. When you wave X you are transported to the location of Y (and vice versa).

MicroMUD for the C64

I was just wondering if MicroMUD for the C64 belongs in the Solutions Archive? It's a single player version of the original Essex MUD released by Virgin Games in 1988.

MAP making utilities

Hi,

I was just wondering which utility everyone is using to make the maps on here? I have a few hand-drawn maps I'd like to tidy up and submit.

Thanks,

John
