Robotfindskitten is a coffeebreak roguelike


Robotfindskitten is a Zen simulation where you, robot (#) are going to find the kitten. The problem is it has hid itself among several things that surely are not kitten. Your task is to touch objects to determine what these are. When a bogus item is found you receive an often funny message describing it. The game ends when robotfindskitten.

Game can be started with parameter specifying amount of bogus things. Subversion number determines total amount of non-kitten objects available.

Robotfindskitten only completes up to step 4 in the 15-step program. And yet, it works wonderfully.
