This game is a port of Crowther/Woods adventure that allows switching between English and French.  It was written in the computing language SAM76 and initially released for the CP/M system. (The copy here has the same SAM76 files, but with the interpreter in DOS.) It is the first text adventure that was playable on home computers in a language other than English. The majority of the implementation was by Jim Manning. Ancelme Roichel (author of the SAM76 language) added some features and wrote...

It has never been available since the 1970s. This was typed from the special "Games" issue of People's Computer Company newsletter, 1974. There were two lines in the original Wumpus source not in the Wumpus 3 source that seemed to be the source of bugs (like how shooting an arrow caused the player to...
