World created using the ZZT engine. A collection of childhood ZZT games inspired by the Pokemon series. Contains many bugs and design issues. Please note that emulation via DOSBox frequently suffers from slow performance, laggy input, and audio issues, especially on more demanding ZZT worlds. An alternate emulator for ZZT such as Zeta or a modern source port like ClassicZoo may provide a better experience.

ESCHER The work of the Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher (1902-1972), based as it is on symmetry and mathematical forms, appeals particularly to computer programmers. Now with the help of the computer you can produce your own patterns based on the same principles as those used by Escher. Consider the following pattern:   [image with ambiguous foreground vs. background] It is based on a mosaic in the Alhambra palace in Spain.  If you look closely you can see that all the tiles are the same...

RAINBOW SQUARE DANCE A two-dimensional cube?  Impossible of course, but this game, played on the computer screen, is similar in many ways to Rubik's Cube. You will see 25 colored squares arranged at random on a 5 x 5 board. The rows of squares on the board are numbered like this:       +---+---+---+---+---+     1 |   |   |   |   |   |       +---+---+---+---+---+     2 |   |   |   |   |   |       +---+---+---+---+---+     3 |   |   |   |   |   |  ...

STM The nature of memory is certainly one of the most interesting topics in psychology.  To remember something has been defined as 'to show in present responses some signs of earlier learned responses.'  Why, though, do we remember some things and forget others?  We may recognize someone we haven't seen in years, or call to mind a tune having heard only a few notes of it, but find it very difficult to remember, for instance, a telephone number.  There are in fact two distinct types of...

KEYBOARD MEMORY This game uses the computer keyboard to test your memory.  Eighteen of the keys each conceal a number, in the same way that a playing card, lying face down, hides its value.  There are nine different numbers, each hidden by two keys. The symbols of the keys you must concentrate on are shown on the screen.     Q W E R T Y     A S D F G H     Z X C V B N Press a key and the number it is hiding will be shown on the screen: press two, one after the other, and if they are...

PARROT PARROT is a very simple competition game.  Play it on a rainy day with a friend (especially after your friend has had a few beers!). At the start of the game, your computer impertinently asks you:     ARE YOU READY PARROT? Yes, he is calling you a parrot!  Press any key and the computer immediately displays a letter.  You must enter the same letter as fast as you can.  Since you copy each letter, you really are a parrot!  The game is repeated for about 10 seconds, and then the...

The computer will give you seven letters: when it asks you     V OR C?  enter V for a vowel or C for a consonant.  When you have your seven letters the computer challenges you to make as long a word as possible out of them, using each letter once...

THE WOLF AND THE FIVE LITTLE GOATS A Grimm's fairy tale?  No, an intriguing board game!  This game is played on a checkerboard displayed on the screen.  As the game begins, the goats are scattered throughout the lower half of the board and are represented by little squares containing a number.  The wolf stands at the upper left-hand corner of the board. Off we go -- you are the wolf, and the computer controls the goats. You win if you eat three goats, and the computer wins if one of the...

Description: ELIZA is a program that accepts natural English as input and carries on a reasonably coherent conversation based on the psychoanalytic techniques of Carl Rogers.  You will have to forgive ELIZA for being a poor English student.  You'll find that it is best not to use punctuation in your input, and you'll have to carry the conversation.  But it does work! How it works: In order to speak to you, ELIZA must: (1) get a string from the user, and prepare it for further processing: (2)...
