Cave crawl/Satire

About the Story

"You play the part of Kuulest's slave, and must recover the Orb of Studosity from the evil Unnkulians. Kuulest, the old geezebag, has died and left you with nothing to go on but a cryptic message about saving the planet. You'll encounter amazing Acme products, the infamous Guardian, those witty creatures known as Drolls, a giant beaver, and even the Dread Unnkulian Warrior. <Gasp!>" [author's blurb, from The (Other) TADS Games List version 1.2]

Off-Site Reviews

[Reviews by Audrey A. DeLisle, Toni Cortes and Valentine Kopteltsev]

Seriously, Unnkulia 1 has everything a text adventure needs to be successful: a nice setting, a memorable player character, good puzzles... Admitted, it's not as deep as most of its successors -- but for what it lacks in depth, it makes up in bright humour, and vividness of descriptions [...] (Valentine Kopteltsev)

How can you stop the Acme Sekuritee Ghards from carting you off to prison? What does the beaver want? Why can't you unlock the Acme Dam Tastee Cheez (tm) Door? And how can you get past the deadly shaft of green light which blocks the way to your goal?

These are just a few of the well thought out puzzles constructed by the author throughout this 70 location adventure. While some problems have fairly obvious solutions there are many that will require lateral thinking and action which is definitely out of the ordinary. But, as long as you examine everything and read all the text carefully, the clues are there to help you on your way.
