Hogbear is an adventure game fashioned after the
game of CASTLE. We have added what we feel are
interesting twists to the game. The monsters can be
reincarneted at random. If you quit the game without
saving it, when you restart the game all the treasures
and weapons needed to kill the monsters are relocated in
the rooms (the furniture is left, just the ARTICALS are
moved). This can lead to an unwinnable game (Maybe), if
the weapon and monster end up in the same room. If you
are fast enough you might win. Then again you might
Hogbear creates and destroys a file on the disk with
the extension of <.FIL> ie-. Be sure to
install Hogbear on its own disk or sub-directory as any
files with the extension of .FIL on Hogbear's disk or
directory will be destroyed also.
We have tested the game for several months using
many testors. We realize that try as we might we may
have left some unforseen anomolies in the game. If you
find a strange or unusual occurence (BUG!!!) while
playing the game leave a message on COMPUSERV
73377,1345 or GENIE k.seal.
Please feel free to place this game , The file HOGBEAR.ARC,
on any bulletin board where you feel others will copy it
and enjoy it.
Thanx a bunch for all your help and GET THE HOGBEAR !!!
