Description

This is a recreation of a 1977 BASIC version of Eliza. It is notthe original The original ELIZA was written at MIT by JosephWeizenbaum in SLIP (Symmetric LIst Processor) between 1964 and 1966as a "A Computer Program For the Study of Natural LanguageCommunication Between Man And Machine" and later rewritten in Lisp(List Processor). It is a very early example of what is now knownas a "chat bot". The version of Eliza that the greatest number ofpeople would have had access to was written in BASIC and appearedin Creative Computing in 1977 (although it was written in 1973 byJeff Shrager). This Android version is a recreation of the 1977Basic version (with a couple of minor fixes) and as such has thesame limitations as that version. Although this program is aninferior imitation of the original SLIP version, it doeswork.Weizenbaum said that ELIZA provided a "parody" of theresponses of a nondirectional psychotherapist in an initialpsychiatric interview. ELIZA was named after Eliza Doolittle, aworking-class character in George Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion,who is taught to speak with an upper-class accent.Since Eliza is anon-directive therapist, you have to carry the conversation,nevertheless, that can lead to some mighty interesting results. Sheworks best if you talk to her in complete sentences and if thosesentences are kept fairly short. She does not care about upper andlower case letters or punctuation. She can be difficult to talkwith and her English is not always the best, but with a littlepractice, you can have very interesting conversations withher.Visit the developer's web site(http://www.cyberspyder.com/Android/Eliza.html) for more details.Ifyou enjoy Eliza, please leave us a good review.

Hunt the Wumpus 2 1.0.1 APK
Tom Aman
This version is ad free. After creating the original "Hunt theWumpus" in 1972, Gregory Yob (June 18, 1945 - October 13, 2005)decided that it would get a bit boring after a few thousand games,so he created "Hunt the Wumpus 2" sometime between 1974 and 1976 toextend the fun. This is a faithful re-creation of that version,again with an adaption to use input methods more suited to Androidbased phones and tablets. As a re-creation, it is entirely textbased.While keeping the same logic where each room in the caveconnects to 3 others, the same hazards (Super bats - in 2 caves -that can pick you up and drop you anywhere at random and bottomlesspits - in 2 caves - which mean instant death if either of theserooms was entered), and the same weapon (a bow with 5 crookedarrows), Gregory came up with 5 new maps to add to the originaldodecahedron and added the ability to allow a player to enterhis/her own map. This resulted in a game that offered some newchallenges while following the same basic rules as the original. Byapplying logic and exercising care, it is possible to win the gamebut it requires that the player work out the details of the map,including the room numbering. Some of the maps are much moredifficult and make it much harder to win. See our web site for moreinformation and details on the new maps.What's new:- this releaseincludes a bug fix for Cave 3 - Hex Map. There was an error thatcaused the app to immediately give an error when this cave wasselected.See the developer's web site(http://www.cyberspyder.com/Android/wumpus2.html) for moredetails.If you enjoy the game, leave us a good review.

Eliza (Original version) 1.0.0 APK
Tom Aman
This is a recreation of the original 'Eliza' running the 'Doctor'scriptThe original ELIZA was written at MIT by Joseph Weizenbaum inSLIP (Symmetric LIst Processor) between 1964 and 1966 as a "AComputer Program For the Study of Natural Language CommunicationBetween Man And Machine" and later rewritten in Lisp (ListProcessor). It is a very early example of what is now known as a"chat bot". A paper, written by Weizenbaum, describing Eliza andincluding the 'Doctor' script may be seen athttp://www.cse.buffalo.edu/~rapaport/572/S02/weizenbaum.eliza.1966.pdfWeizenbaum said that ELIZA, running the 'Doctor' script, provided a"parody" of the responses of a nondirectional psychotherapist in aninitial psychiatric interview. ELIZA was named after ElizaDoolittle, a working-class character in George Bernard Shaw's playPygmalion, who is taught to speak with an upper-class accent.Thisversion is based on the original script as shown in Weizenbaum'spaper. We have tried to ensure that this version acts exactly likethe original. It uses essentially the same script and follows thesame rules as described in Weizenbaum's paper. The only recordedconversation with the original Eliza that we have found is the oneappearing in his paper and our version will duplicate thatconversation. The ONLY deviations ("improvements"??) I haveincorporated are: - The original only used upper case characters inthe response. I have used upper and lower case (thanks to ourmodern computer systems). - The original did not allow the use of a"?" in the input as it had a special meaning to the IBM 7094 MACtime sharing system that was used for the original. My versionallows the use of any desired punctuation (or no punctuation atall). - I have included some commands to terminate a session withELIZA (bye, goodbye, quit) as well as a response to this fromELIZA. I have no information on how a session was terminated in theoriginal and the original script does not seem to include anyresponse for this.Also, ELIZA works well even if your input is alllower case characters and is missing most punctuation.Since Elizais a non-directive therapist, you have to carry the conversation,nevertheless, that can lead to some mighty interesting results.Although her English is not always the best, you can have veryinteresting conversations with her.This version is ad free.Visitthe developer's web site(http://www.cyberspyder.com/Android/Eliza2.html) for moredetails.If you enjoy Eliza, please leave us a good review.

Hunt the Wumpus 1.0.0 APK
Tom Aman
This is a re-creation of the original game developed in 1972 byGregory Yob (June 18, 1945 - October 13, 2005) who wanted to createa game that was better and more interesting than those currentlyavailable.In this game, you are in a cave of 20 rooms mapped as adodecahedron, where each room connects to 3 other rooms. The cavesdo contain hazards. Super bats - in 2 caves - that can pick you upand drop you anywhere at random and bottomless pits - in 2 caves -which meant instant death if either of these rooms was entered (orif you were dropped in one of these rooms by a super bat). Thehunter's weapon is bow and 5 "crooked" arrows. When shooting, thehunter can specify up to 5 connected rooms to which the arrow is togo so that, once it is determined where the Wumpus is, an arrow canbe shot at him from any nearby roomWhile there have been manyvariations of this game created with various "improvements",including graphical representations and various changes to the cavelayout, hazards faced, and weapon used, many of these miss thepoint of the logic required to get the Wumpus. Thus, I decided tostay faithful to the original so this game is entirely text based.The only change I have made is to adapt the game to use inputmethods more suited to Android based phones and tablets. Other thanthat, this game is the original as created by Gregory Yob. Byapplying logic and exercising care, it is usually possible to winthe game but it requires that the player work out the details ofthe map, including the room numbering. Visit the developer's website (http://www.cyberspyder.com/Android/wumpus.html) for moredetails.If you enjoy the game, leave us a good review and check out"Hunt the Wumpus 2" for more challenges.

Quest 1.0.0 APK
Tom Aman
This is a re-creation of a 1979 text adventure for small computers.In 1979, most affordable personal computers did not have a lot ofmemory. One of the "affordable" ones that cost about $795 was theCommodore PET with 8K of memoryof which only 7123 bytes wereactually available for a BASIC program. While large mainframecomputers with 200K could run that early adventure called ColossalCave Adventure (1976, Will Crowther) and some of the larger (i.e.more expensive) personal computers with then expensive floppy diskswere running games such as Zork or Dungeon, a system without thatextra hardware was somewhat limited.Having enjoyed Colossal Cave,Roger Chafee wondered if it would be possible to create somethingsimilar to run on these smaller computers - after a couple ofintense work weeks, he wrote a program called Quest. This is are-creation of that program for Android. It shows what can be donewith a bit of creative effort, even with limited resources. As abonus, it is fun to play.Most people can complete this adventure inabout 2 hours, although it has been done in an hour, and somepeople haven't finished it after a day of frustrating search.Canyou find the pirate's treasure and get it out of the cave?Visit thedeveloper's web site(http://www.cyberspyder.com/Android/Quest.html) for more details.Ifyou enjoy Quest, please leave us a good review.
