Re: Python text adventure ISS Emergency!

A final tweak made and we're done. Thanks again for the feedback. I've made the code into a sort of framework layout so that its easy to re-use to create further games.

Re: Python text adventure ISS Emergency!

Glad you enjoyed the game and thanks for the comments, very useful.
I've made some changes to the game as suggested.
Could you try it again and see what you think now.

Re: Text adventure

Yes. If you are carrying the correct objects, try the use command.
Also, if you are stuck on the platform, you may not have found the torch. x (examine) everything !
The adventure is short, but it is complete.
