jacquette du jeu

A l'arrière de la jacquette on peut lire:
I can't tell jou much about the pathways. When I began Writing this program they were simple and safe, but soon the program was designing them itself. Time passed. The pathways became dark and frightening places. I set the computer to add 'games' to the pathways. With sinister speed and efficiency it created dozens of different video games with hundreds of versions and deviations.
When the pathways were complete I could not survive in them; my computer began to hate me for my weakness. I programmed frantically to throw 30 'beacons' into the pathways. So survival became possible. Is there a nice surprise at 30,00 points ? I never found out - the pathway got me evrytime. As yet I haven't even made it half way to that 30th beacon, but one day I believe someone somewhere will do just that, and the pathways shal be conquered.
Andrew Moore, November 1984.
