About the StoryLoosely based on John Christopher's Tripods trilogy, this game allows up to four players to take the roles of the human resistance or the alien masters and their tripods. There are relatively few puzzles in this game, but a fairly large area to move around in and plenty of NPCs, many of which will be looking for a fight. Originally published as a type-in game for the ZX Spectrum in the British magazine Personal Computer News #79.

Wandering NPCs by Fredrik
I have always been fascinated with games that have several wandering and independent NPCs, especially when you have the ability to try to order them around. This sets the stage for a game where no one session is like any other, and even...
Type-in games by Fredrik
I can only guess that I was not the only one spending hours upon hours typing in those BASIC listings from magazines and books back in the 80s. And unavoidably learning the art of programming in the process. Not to mention gleaning...
Dynamic open world IFs by Natrium729
