Ancient resource management game, interesting for a while, February 24, 2020
by gene666There's no story, so it's not interactive fiction or a text adventure, really. At each turn, you can buy land, sell land, plant land, & distribute food. By twiddling these numbers, you try to grow your city. At each turn, some people starve, some move into the city, rats destroy food, & the price of land changes.
It's old. It's cute. It's a reminder of the early programming projects people do (or did) in school in the 1970s or early 1980s.
For what it's worth, I found "hammurabi.c" in the hammurabi.zip file on IF-Archive, compiled that & played that version. Did not play the Hugo version.
