Try to find your friend within five days of arriving in London. A simple game, designed to teach English. I suspect that people learning English will find it easier than native speakers, due to the necessity of using textbook-like formulas for communication - "May I have some pizza, please?" will work where "I would like some pizza" will not. Very limited command set, no inventory, occasional still EGA graphics, some in-game hints. Money and food are factors. Will quiz you on English history (answers can be found in the game). If you're not familiar with London, I suggest getting a map to play this game. A simple one will do.
