11th Place - 2nd Annual Interactive Fiction Competition (1996)
-- Carl Muckenhoupt
Although "Lists" barely scratches the surface of Scheme's capabilities, I was surprised by how much functionality was crammed into such a small program, particularly with the ease-of-use features. Even if you complete all of the sample exercises within the two-hour time limit, there's plenty more to come back and investigate afterwards.

An interactive LisP programming tutorial made into an IF piece, September 18, 2015
Internally, there isn't much to this piece, which is why the file size is relatively small. But trying your hand at introductory LisP programming and then having an NPC check the results each step of the way makes it surprisingly fun.
I enjoyed the game, getting up to the SUM command before quitting.
A good game for those interested in learning a computer programming language.
