A band of marauding trolls have destroyed the town of Crobe, providing you with an excuse to go on a treasure hunt in the caves where they live. Two-word parser with a limited command set (in particular, there's no "examine" verb), much magic wordage, some very clever and very tough puzzles - just getting into the cave is a major sticking point, and not only is it possible to lock yourself out of victory without realizing it, but sometimes you can be awarded points for doing so. Does novel things with the familiar maze-of-twisty-little-passages motif. Pretty darned good, as classical treasure hunts go.
