Igor's Quest is an online web browser interactive fiction game written with Adventuron and is © 2020 by Garry Francis. It was a participant in the Adventuron Treasure Hunt Jam (2020) event.

In this minimalist wordplay game where all commands and responses are only two words or less, you play as Doctor Frankenstein's assistant, Igor. He orders you find a head, hair, eyes, ears, a body, arms, hands, legs, and feet and bring them to his laboratory.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Version 1.0.0 of the game.

SPOILERS AHEAD. Reading a walkthrough prematurely can sometimes diminish one's enjoyment of an interactive fiction game. Please make an honest effort to play the game before reading this walkthrough.

This is the response to CREDITS:

Igor's Quest
Version 1.0.0
Copyright © 2020 Garry Francis
Compiled with Adventuron version 1.0.0 Beta 27g

Written for Adventuron Treasure Hunt Jam, 6 February to 5 March 2020. Rules defined at

Adventuron written by Chris Ainsley.

Game design, coding and graphics by Garry Francis.

Public domain Royalati font by Brendan Raftery.

Play testing by Chris Ainsley and Lionel Ange. Thank you both!



You have an carrying limit of 5 items, not counting clothing you're wearing or things inside other things.

Treasures (false body parts)

The "treasures" in this game are things that sound like the body parts that Doctor Frankenstein wants, but are other things instead. Drop all the treasures in the laboratory, then pull the rope there when you've got them all.


The response to SCORE is as laconic as the rest of the game:

Score: your-score

The maximum score is 90. For each of the nine "treasures", you earn 5 points when you first obtain it, and another 5 points when you drop it in the laboratory.

If, for some reason, you take a treasure from the lab, you lose the points for depositing it until you re-drop it there.
