Questprobe Featuring Human Torch & The Thing is a good old fashioned text adventure. It was created by Scott Adams in 1985, and being a Scott Adams game, it is full to the brim of notoriously tricky puzzles. I like how you have to switch between characters, and use the skills of both of them in order to progress. You get to experiment with the superpowers, and use them to your advantage. The text parser can understand fairly complex sentences. You must specify where to throw things (and how hard to throw things), how long to wait, strength of Human Torch's flame, etc. This can be a little frustrating at times, as you struggle to find the correct words, but at the same time, it just adds to the challenge. The graphics are rich and vibrant. All in all, a good old-fashioned text adventure, well worth a try.
