Welcome to the Journey across America. You are about to embark on a trip through
the United Sates. Your goal is to pass through all the states and answer questions
in each state as you go. You must try to plan your journey so that you do not pass
through a state a second time. If you do, the game ends.
The computer will choose a random state in which you will start. You will be told
which directions you may travel. There are eight directions: North, South, East, West,
Northeast, Nortwest, Southeast, and Southwest. You may use those words or just the
abbreviations N, S, E, W, NE, NW, SE, and SW. The only other commands that you can use
in the game are: SAVE (to save the current game), LOAD (to load a previously saved
game), SCORE (to see the score of your current game), HIGH (to view the high scores of
all games that have been played on your computer), QUIT (to exit the current game), and
HELP (to view these 22 commands).
A perfect score is 100. You receive one point for each state that you visit and one
point for each question that you answer correctly. It would be a good idea to have a
map of the U.S. in front of you as you play. Good luck on your travels!
