Key & Compass presents:
The Wolf and the Seven Kids
by Moritz

The Wolf and the Seven Kids is a Z-machine work of interactive fiction written with Inform 7 and is © 2012 by Moritz.

In this short sparsely-implemented adaptation of the fairy tale, you play as the wolf. Your goal is to get into the house and eat all seven kids.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the work.

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

*** Hey! You won, you evil wolf. ***

Evil? The wolf is poor and hungry and lives in a cave. Not everyone has a house and a mother who can buy food at the marketplace, I'll have you know. What do you think the wolf should do instead?




Also, all seven kids are portable. Eat them.
