Snakes And Ladders by KFAdrift

*As featured in Reviews Exchange Issue 2*


Sometimes a game (I’m using that term loosely) comes along and you just don’t have a clue what you're supposed to make of it. Basically this is a game of snakes and ladders in text adventure format but lacking any kind of visual aid to let you know what is going on aside from a row of six dots, one or more of which might be blocked out to indicate a snake or a ladder ahead of you. Progress is made by pressing keys to move you along a certain number of squares on the snakes and ladders board but without any way of really knowing what you're going to roll or what might be on any particular square ahead of you, it’s difficult to play this game.

As an exercise in porting a board game to ADRIFT I guess it had novelty value but I really couldn’t find anything about it to recommend.

Sorry but…
