     WUMP(6)                                                   WUMP(6)

          wump - the game of hunt-the-wumpus


          Wump plays the game of `Hunt the Wumpus.'  A Wumpus is a
          creature that lives in a cave with several rooms connected
          by tunnels.  You wander among the rooms, trying to shoot the
          Wumpus with an arrow, meanwhile avoiding being eaten by the
          Wumpus and falling into Bottomless Pits.  There are also
          Super Bats which are likely to pick you up and drop you in
          some random room.

          The program asks various questions which you answer one per
          line; it will give a more detailed description if you want.

          This program is based on one described in People's Computer
          Company, 2, 2 (November 1973).

          It will never replace Space War.
