Pub Adventure!
by Tom and Robin Edwards

Pub Adventure! is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2021 by Tom and Robin Edwards. It was an entry in PunyJam #1 where it took 5th place.

In this small adventure, your pub is deserted. Your customers were scared away by the ghost of the previous landlord, and he won't stop haunting the place until he gets a zombie cocktail. Easy.

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.
