Explore the house. Defeat the evil witch. 

A small spooky text adventure in the TELETEXT style. It should take between 3 and 15 minutes of play time depending on experience.

This adventure is NOT suitable for younger children.

The game features no gore, no curse words, no realistic violence, but there are SCARY elements to the game.

A version of this game's source code (with graphics, fonts, and tutorial removed) will act as a demonstration of a spooky game for the Adventuron Halloween Jam (#textadventurejam).

I did it! I think I got everything. I got the good ending, the bad ending and the battery ending, as well as the shameless plug. The kitchen counter made me smile.

I'm glad you enjoyed. It's a trivial but tactile adventure.

You are the first person to mention the kitchen counter :-)

Reminds me heavily of old BBC micro games. Good job!

Insufficient A.I. controls, but nice game

good luck!

Nice graphics :)
Played it twice, wanted to change the outcome :D
