(Recommended for all ages/Written in BASIC)

Four smug mugwumps are hiding in a ten-by-ten grid. Your objective is to locate all four within ten turns. You search by entering numbers representing horizontal and vertical coordinates on the grid. After each pair of numbers you enter, the computer tells you your distance from each hidden mugwump. Any mugwump you discover yelps and flashes on the screen in hurt surprise. Younger players can become familiar with the coordinate system through playing MUGWUMP; older players can put their trigonometry to work to locate the elusive mythical beasts.

Review Comments:

“This game is rather static and soundless, but it might interest gamesters who like using mathematics or intuition to find hidden objects.”
