Hunt the Wumpus Screenshot Deep within a maze of caverns and twisting tunnels lives a creature known as the Wumpus. Protected by giant bats and pits of slime, the Wumpus feeds on unwary visitors that enter his dwelling. Will you be victorious in slaying the Wumpus, or just its next victim?

Gregory Yob created the original Hunt The Wumpus back in the 1970's before it made it's way to the TI-99/4A. His version of the game was completely text based, telling you when bats were near, which rooms you could go to, etc. For the TI-99/4A version, however, Kevin Kenney decided to implement graphics.

This was Kevin Kenney's first title for the TI-99/4A. His other game, Tunnels of Doom, was released a year after Hunt The Wumpus and went on to become one of the most popular TI cartridges.
