BBC is running a new program (you can listen to the episodes here too) and have put together a game based on the books by Douglas Adams. Grab a towel and come along!

I think this is exactly like the old Infocom game. I have this for the Commodore 64. One of these days I'll hook it up again and see if everything works.

(Directly after entering airlock in space ship)
The room is dark...
The Room is dark, you hear a noise.
The room is dark, you hear a grumbling noise.
You've been eaten by a *&#(*#&$ (Don't remember what it's called)
I never got past that part. I got a walk-thru cheat and it didn't work. Whoa is me.

I'm so stupid...I got 0 points.

I got out of the house, but then a bulldozer flattened it.

Astoundingly, a bulldozer pokes through your wall. However, you have no time for surprise because the ceiling is collapsing on you as your home is unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new bypass. You are seriously injured in the process, but on your way to the hospital a fleet of Vogon Constructor ships unexpectedly arrives and demolishes the Earth to make way for a new hyperspace bypass.
Better luck next life.
I got 10 points.
This is a really cool game though!

ok I got 10 points. No matter how fast I run I get killed my shrapnel. Ugh. This is worst than the Crimson Room.

It's been like 15 years or so since I read the books. Barely remember any of it. Movie could be a lot of fun.

Wow, I used to play that game for hours on my old Apple ///. Don't forget to buy a sandwich and feed it to the dog.
Getting the bablefish still ranks as one of the top accomplishments in my life.

heh so i finally figure out how to get of the house, but can't stop the bulldozer, or am i not supposed to.
heh interesting game. reminds me of the first kings quest i ever played.

Lay down in front of the bulldozer. Then type "wait" for a few turns until Ford shows up. Then type "Ford, what about my home?"
That should get you away from the house. Oh yeah, take the towel from Ford too.

From the Zork series. If you are in the dark for too long, a Grue will get you.
If you are playing Zork also type "plugh" and "xyzzy" w/o quotes...
In Hitchhikers, don't forget to go the bar with Ford, and eat the peanuts after teleportation...

There's a bar? I am dead and cannot go there.
