Larn - Play Online
DOS - 1986
For small DOS games like Larn, you can play online immediately with your browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer...). This feature is still experimental, the game may not work properly. Warning: game save should work, but you should try it early! Also, be careful to select the right game executable in the list below.
You have to choose the right game executable, then press PLAY.
To exit fullscreen mode, press escape. Playing experience can be poor due to your browser or your computer. Download Larn and launch it with DOSBox to have the best playing experience!
If the game is too fast or too slow, try hitting CTRL-F11 (slower) and CTRL-F12 (faster).
Larn uses H/J/K/L keys for movement - just like in the "vim" editor. The programmer who wrote vim did it on a ADM-3A computer. If you look at a picture of the keyboard of an ADM-3A (search for "adm-3a keyboard"), the arrow keys on that computer's keyboard are printed on the H, J, K, and L keys.
I remember playing this, but having problems with using browser.
I downloaded DOSBOx and got Larn running under that...everything is fine, except using the keypad for movement doesn't work, and using the letters for movement is badly mapped for a QWERTY keyboard. I can only assume the author used something other than QWERTY for movement keys.
Too bad, was looking forward to playing it more.
