3rd week in programming and we’re given a task that takes me back to my youth, the text adventure! Brings back memories of playing Sphinx or Adventure on the Beeb, whilst eating Spangles and drinking Quattro, wearing appropriate 80’s attire and listening to Erasure or The Smiths.

1020 lines of newbie code later, I have a working, playable program. Minimal debugging and I didn’t cry or lose my temper once! May the rest of my 1st year programming tasks run as smoothly.
