Description of Gnome Ranger

Gnome Ranger is a fun tongue-in-cheek fantasy adventure that follows the exploits and misadventures of Ingrid, a good-natured but exceedingly accident-prone gnome, who has been banished by her village and must find her way back home.

Gnome Ranger debuts Level 9's new parser that is a vast improvement over their previous efforts (that ends with Knight Orc) and quite comparable to Infocom's famous parser. You can now tell Ingrid to FIND any object or person if you have met or seen them before. This is a very handy command, especially if you've dropped an item by mistake and can't remember where, or need to find someone in a hurry.

You can also GO TO and RUN TO any location you've been, FOLLOW a person, or WAIT FOR someone to show up. Puzzles are challenging but fair, and make good use of new parser commands.

With refreshing (if a bit overused) humor, colorful characters, and well-written plot, Gnome Ranger is a must play for every Level 9 and Infocom fan.
