The Mouse Who Woke Up For Christmas

Seasonal

About the Story

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse...

Well, that's not quite true, there was a mouse stirring, not in the house, but in the shed at the bottom of the garden where he lived.

This is a text adventure game in the classic puzzle parser style (but with less hunt the verb/phrase frustration).

This game uses the Quest engine (which is free to download: http://textadventures.co.uk/quest) and you can then play the game file offline (recommended), or you can play online here: http://textadventures.co.uk/games/view/dwh6ap1wbkqtujkhgxzrog/the-mouse-who-woke-up-for-christmas

Luke A Jones strikes again, November 2, 2018
In this game, we get to play as Gerald Mouse, who has appeared in a few of Jones's previous games.

This short work is a lot like the author's other Christmas games (trading items we acquire for items on our list), except this game has a bit of adventure at the end.

As another reviewer has noted, there are a few typographical errors, but not so many that it detracted from the fun.

Meh., October 29, 2018
It's kind of cute, but it has a bunch of typos and such, and it seems to be nothing but irritating guess-the-verb puzzles from beginning to...well, as far as I got (part way through the pet shop).

If you enjoyed The Mouse Who Woke Up For Christmas...
