|You are an Adventurous Young Man who, several days ago, tripped into an Dank Pit and found himself trapped in a Strange Land of Wonder which may also be an underground bunker of unknown size.

RoomLand is an adventure by Marty. It follows the adventures of an unnamed Adventurous Young Man and a Spider Hero as they explore an underground bunker/strange land of wonder.
ACT 1 PART 1.1: MEET THE HEROES
The adventure starts with the hero, having fell down a dank pit into an underground bunker several days ago, realizing that he's not getting out of this mess without doing something about it. He explores his surroundings, upsetting a nearby spider. He finds a note addressed to the Hero Spider of Roomland. It is a boastful message from the Joxicles informing the Hero Spider that he has been locked away and his people enslaved. The hero eventually manages to befriend the spider and discovers that he is in fact the hero spider mentioned in the note. After giving the spider a crash course in english the hero shows the note to the hero spider who resolves to free his people. They escape the room and are confronted by a Joxicle, who they best in combat. The Spider Hero promptly heads into Joxicle territory to rescue his people.
ACT 1 PART 1.2: THE LIVING PAINTING
Unable to follow him the hero instead experiments with a picture frame door and succeeds in opening a portal into a painting he drew. After collecting a PIC-A-NIC BASKET, climbing a tree, and tricking an army of bears after the basket to go away, he retrieves a glowing object, commonly called a SUN, from the sky and is ejected back into the real world where the Spider Hero is now huge and fighting King Joxicle.
INTERLUDE PART ???:???
The artist 'dies'. It is assumed Marty took his position.
The perpetrator of these malignant lies against our great and glorious leader Marty has been reprimanded.
ACT 1 PART 2: THE SPIDER, THE JOXICLE, AND THE ANT
Upon the discovery of the Spider Hero and the King fighting, the adventure flashes back to the spider's activities while the hero messed about. The spider, after some escapades, arrives in town and discovers a SWEET RIDE. He follows and hitches a ride on the shopkeeper Joxicle, which gets beat up, the Spider Hero leaving him to head to the HOTEL. Upon arrival, there's a weird door, some kind of dark crystal. When he heads to the right, he sees his brethren, before hacking into their security robot, becoming Spiborg, and attempting to free them. He discovers the wall to be Plastic Wrap instead of glass, and so heads upstairs. He is greeted by his weapon, the Web Weaver, and two Joxicle Guards standing on the other side of a line that says "do not cross". After a musical interlude, Spiborg outwits the two guards, gets the Web Weaver, and then the Spider Hero makes his escape. After saving his brethren, he meets an ant, gets on a truck, sees the Joxicle King, loses the ant, does some climbing, and after entering Princess Joxicle's room, and disguising, he is carried to the king. His disguise is blown by a sneeze, and a battle emerges. The Spider Hero whips the Joxicle King's butt, and then the Joxicle King essentially uses Magical Steroids to punch the spider around like a pinball. Amazingly, the Spider Hero doesn't get crushed against a wall or anything, and eventually, after the Spider Hero eats a MAGICAL GEM that cause him to grow, they end up in the situation that the Hero, by this point nicknamed Marty, comes upon.
ACT 1 PART 3: "THAT ANT JUST RIPPED OFF MIMI"
Before the fight begins, the Spider and Joxicle princesses appear and ask for their respective Hero/Father to not fight. Suddenly, the ant from before shows up, and suddenly shows its true face. This is followed by a boss battle, with Timed Hits, a throwback to the Mario and Luigi games. The fight game can be downloaded here.
