Game: The Old Hag Menace
The Old Hag Menace is a completely inappropriate adventure game, which combines cartoonish and pixel graphics with traditional adventure game mechanics. The goal of the game is to increase Mrs. Busybody’s (a.k.a. the old hag) blood-pressure by doing pranks and other mischieves, ultimately leading to Mrs. Busybody’s death. The old hag is always watching through some of the windows, and if she sees you doing pranks, she will call the cops and you will lose the game. You can avoid the old hags gaze by hiding behind some larger objects (e.g. trees). Mrs. Busybody’s yard is divided in three parts: front yard, garden and back yard. Move between the yards by walking through the sides of the game screen. All actions are done with text commands (e.g. 'look door', 'steal apple' etc.).
