This command isn't required to complete the game, but it is one that is likely to be tried in the process of playing it. The version at flaxcottage.com is the same. Do all r...

XOR for Schools

I'd give thought to adding that Shipwreck ssd here in this topic/thread too, given it seems almost educational ? :)
I wasn't sure where to put it. I suppose I didn't think it was quite educational enough for this thread. People can follow the link above if interested.

I've come across a simple BBC Micro text adventure called Shipwreck. It's aimed at younger children. Is this already known about and archived?
