Jack O’ Lantern

 

A Halloween adventure game. You arrive at a Halloween party only to find that the mansion where the party was supposed to be is completely empty. What force has spirited away your friends? An ancient evil lurks within.

Contains my first RPG battle system.

This game was originally planned as a QBASIC text adventure. The maps I created for that game were adapted for ZZT.

ZZT games require ZZT to play. Download it from Z2.

Ancient Castle of the Dogs

 

Originally begun as part of a cancelled Bob 3 adventure game, this action-adventure game delights in bad puns and giant dogs (with weak spots on their noses). Features some programming and design elements from Glynth and originally released to Glynth’s website right before New Year’s Eve 1997. The last game I released to use the “star system” of recurring characters playing different roles.

In 2012, ZZTer and Glorious Trainwrecker Viovis/ghettowreath published a write-up of Ancient Castle of the Dogs as a “ZZT Essential.”
