Ultimate Nightmare 2092


Ultimate Nightmare is a smallish text adventure game I originally wrote back
in 1992 on my Acorn Electron. My Amiga was undergoing repair and I need a
programming fix, so out came my previous computer for some BBC BASIC programming.
I had intended to release the game to public domain but that didn't really happen at the time.
In 2002 I converted to a uef and hosted it on my website where it sat pretty much without any
interest until EUG picked it up and hosted it.

Never really happy with the game I made a host of changes in 2020 and am
now pleased to release a much updated version.

Some of the changes made:
- Inclusion of a intro section containing background
and instructions.
- Graphical loading screen
- Improved load/save game error trapping
- Upper and lower case is now accepted
- Updated location description and character text
- More things can be EXAMined and explored
- Turn counter at the top of the screen
- Various typo/spelling errors corrected.
