Game review

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was released in 1984. That's a few years ago now. At the time it was an innovative and engaging text-based adventure game based on Douglas Adams' famous science fiction series. 

Set in the same universe as the book series, the game starts with the player in the role of Arthur Dent, a typical human who suddenly finds himself thrust into an intergalactic adventure. The narrative follows the book's plot but adds original twists and puzzles, making it both familiar to fans and fresh for new players. The game's text-based interface requires players to type in commands to interact with the environment, solve puzzles, and advance the story.

One of the most notable aspects of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy game is its humor. True to Adams' style, the game is filled with clever wordplay, satirical commentary, and absurd situations that both amuse and challenge the player. This tone sets it apart from many other games of its era and makes it a memorable experience, even when the puzzles can be notoriously tricky.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy game is a cult classic that captures the essence of Douglas Adams' universe with its quirky humor and challenging puzzles.
