Little Green Robbing Hood
by Jake Wildstrom

Little Green Robbing Hood is a Z-machine 2 interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2006 by Jake Wildstrom. It was a participant in the Speed-IF Gruff event.

In this short game that blends Little Red Riding Hood with the legend of Robin Hood, you of course are playing as Little Green Robbing Hood. Your grandmother's fields were torched by Sir Guy of Gisbourne, so you're taking a loaf of bread to her so she doesn't starve.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 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 perplexing ending seems to be the best one? Well, drat.
