Adventure in Unlambda

This is a translation into Unlambda esoteric programming language of Don Knuth's CWEB version of Adventure (aka Colossal Cave Adventure). The original Adventure was written by Willie Crowther and Don Woods.

How to Play

You need an interpreter of Unlambda version 2. I recommend the c-refcnt interpreter included in the Unlambda 2.0.0 distribution, or the first one written by Emil Jerabek.

Or, you can play it on your web browser at inazz's JavaScript Unlambda interperter!

How to Develop

The Unlambda code is generated by the Scheme code in src/ directory. You need Gauche Scheme interpreter to run it.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
