The Story of Morris the Chicken Being Helped by a Squirrel is an ALAN 2 interactive fiction game and is © 1998 by Mikko Vuorinen. It was a participant in the ChickenComp event.

You play as a squirrel. Morris, a chicken, wants to cross a busy road and hopes you can help her do it.

Cars hit each other and eventually halt. Morris crosses the road.

Well done!




Note that as a squirrel, you can only carry one thing at a time.

The first dropped item will miss, but the second dropped item will hit a car. You win when you drop the second item from the tree branch, whichever item it is.
