Haunted House is an obscure text-mode game with an interesting premise. The object is to rescue Amber from a haunted house. You need to find three keys (dropped randomly by killing monsters) and collect 1000 gold (also dropped by monsters) before you can rescue her. The house is not so much "haunted" as it is filled with a huge variety of enemies, including an ape, an owl, a mummy, a vampire, and a slime monster, among others. The position of monsters and items (and Amber) are randomized, but the layout is always the same. Luck plays a big part in this game because if you don't get the items you need (like MORE FOOD!) you will have no chance to win. Your chances of rescuing Amber are slim (more likely you'll die before collecting any keys or gold!) but at least you can score points for what you accomplish before you die!
