Heh, I think I had that game. Marroon colored case?

I'm not 100% positive, but I think years later I looked at 
"Hunt the Wumpus", a text-based classic for Unix (and older?) 
systems, and it occurred to me that the handheld must've just
been a graphical version of that game. Of course, by that point
I hadn't played the handheld for years, and wumpus was a little
too difficult for me to get into, so take it with a grain of salt. gives a 
description, is the game
itself in javascript.

Hunt the Wumpus might be very doable on the 2600, but comapared
to Skeleton a lot less action packed! The oldschool purists might
appreciate it tho.
