Ultimate Retro Project
Episode 1: Classic Doors

The first game in the Ultimate Retro Project

Page Last Updated: April 1, 2006


Your friend has moved to a new appartment and you want to surprise him or her. Unfortunately, you do not know the apartment number. You decide that you will find the apartment by knocking on a few doors. Though you don't want to disturb too many people.

Using the Console

Creating text games is interesting, but my goal was also to present the game in a way that would simulate a teletype machine as close as possible. This is why the game uses my console.

My Teletype Emulator is designed to simulate playing the game on an old teletype machine, down to the dot matrix output. Anybody who has used an old printer knows how slow they were. They were also noisy, but out of the goodness of my heart, I decided to leave the noise out.

For getting input from the user, I decided to go with a fancy LCD model, in which what you type will be send to a LCD display for your approval before being transmitted to the machine. Unlike real machines, my terminal is intelligent and will only let you enter something when the program is requesting input. Any other typing is ignored!

Playing the Game

To play the game you select the difficulty level (which determines how many rooms there are and the number of guesses you are allowed) and then choose a door. The person will tell you if the room number of your friend is higher or lower than yours (though because they only know the direction where the movers were making noise they can't tell you the exact room number). Keep guessing until you find your friend or run out of guesses.

System Requirements

This game is requires Java 1.1 or better to run. Browsers that support 1.1 tend to be 4.x or better versions. Windows XP users may have to download a Java plug in to use Java applets.
