1) Based on a simple hide and seek format featuring a mysterious monster (the Wumpus) that lurks deep inside a network of rooms.

2) Adventure game is a video game in which the player assumes the role of protagonist in an interactive story driven by exploration and puzzle-solving. The genre's focus on story allows it to draw heavily from other narrative-based media such as literature and film, encompassing a wide variety of literary genres. Nearly all adventure games (text and graphic) are designed for a single player, since this emphasis on story and character makes multi-player design difficult.

3) Written in BASIC.

4) Game also available on Altair 8800; Apple II; Commodore PET/CBM; HP Programmable Calculator; Intel 8080; KIM-1; Sol-20; TRS-80; Wang 2200.

5) First survival horror game is Haunted House.
