The Things That Go Bump In The Night - a text adventure written by Tim Hamilton.

Night security! How did you end up with this nine dollar an hour job. Oh well at least you don't have to work that hard. In fact, this job is actually quite boring. Watching security cameras and sometimes pressing a button to open a gate or two. You settle into your chair in the security office and settle down with a book. After several hours you look up from your book and think it's been really quiet tonight. In fact you don't think you have heard any chatter on the radio for quite some time. And, come to think of it, there has been no activity on the cameras either. Hmmm, that's odd. Usually there are forklifts running around and people passing by. You decide to put the book away and scan the cameras more closely to see if there is anything going on...

I like it

I'm a big fan of interactive fiction, or text adventures, and while this is a SLIGHT divergence from its original form, it is perfect for playing on a mobile device. I've only started playing, so I don't have much to say about the content, but the implementation is well thought out. Good job.

Classic gaming for a new era

The thing I hated about text games was the typing. This text adventure is engaging enough for the fans of those games from the 1970's and 80's but MUCH MORE CONVENIENT TO PLAY!

Kids, be glad this game is here. You can experience the best adventure games your grandparents could play, and actually play it!

Love it

I love the game and the whole idea about it but it does get harder to the point of me and my friends are stuck and can't figure out what to do. It may be on purpose but still don't just trap us like that. Otherwise the game is great and I really recommend it.
