This is a short sequence from the Secret Canyon region of the game. This particular sequence was captured on a PC using a mouse to play. Gamepad and keyboard control are also supported. The video demonstrates our implementation of a point and click user interface. A key design goal was to keep the player in control of the action and not bog the play down with long waits, cutscenes, dialog trees, etc.

I spent so many night awake until all hours of the night playing this on my dad's apple 2c back in 1975,6,7... it is a very rich game and one you will not finish in an hour or a day. This is the game which spawned an entire genre (or 2 or 3): rpgs, text adventures, d & d sims... they all started here.

Colossal cave takes you on a grand adventure underground: dragons, pirates, and other slithery things :) I would not want to spoil it for the uninitiated by giving a blow by blow. I will just say that this is definitely worth downloading! You can't get much more "retro," as this is the first of its kind.



I played Colossal Cave (a.k.a. "Adventure") when it was first developed, back in the 1970s. At the time, it was one of the most fascinating computer games available. And its long life -- and the fact that I'm playing it again almost 40 years later -- support the fact that this is the greatest adventure game of all time.
