Trekkie 1 has been Updated
Thanks to some feedback, I revised Trekkie 1 a touch to make it easier for new players.
First of all, I added some additional HELP text to the beginning of the game:
Type HELP for a list of commands.
Type HELP [command] details on a particular command.
Type HELP PRINT for a printable list of commands.
These HELP commands were already present, but it wasn't obvious to people that there were available, so I decided to highlight them up front to make them harder to miss.
Secondly, I added a feature so that the Short Range Scan always redraws every time you issue a MOVE command. In the good old days, when games like this were played on paper printers, this would have used a lot of paper. But hopefully, we all have screens so that this isn't a problem. However, if you want to disable this feature, just type SRS MANUAL to disable it, or re-enable the feature with SRS AUTO.
Hopefully this will make the game a bit more accessible! I am going to extend the Beta Sale for a few days, in order to give people a chance to check out the new version. Please let me know if you have any problems installing or playing it. And, if you enjoy Trekkie, be sure to recommend it to your friends!
