I found Lambdamoo interesting. I found it hard to navigate. It seemed very old school, probably established by someone long long ago. I doubt it was ever updated. It seems like something straight out of the early 90’s.
It was something like a zelda game. Except here your controller was your keyboard. You typed in words and they took you somewhere or no where. Often times I got jammed up and didn’t know what phrase to put, I kept putting phrases and eventually I was to the next place. Sometimes that place was a door, dressing room, window, or cellar.
I remember doing this exercise in class with other classmates and it helped to work on this as a team. It helped to collaborate much of the time. Other times we all were lost.
I can’t imagine why someone would spend there free time on this site. I didn’t find it enjoyable at all. It was frustrating. It did not make much sense. It seemed like an endless maze. I was just wondering when is this horrible ting going to end. I could not imagine spending a lot of time on the site. There are many more things I would do before I spent a whole bunch of time on this site.
As far as how it works, I am unsure. Who determines if the command you enter is valid or not? Who even set up this awkward site. A lot of things I would enter would not be recognized. Then I would keep entering words until a response came.
1) Do you see any value in this program/site?
2) Did you understand how the site functioned?
I felt like it brought me to the same place over and over again. Maybe this creation would be more popular and like if it was updated. I certainly would like it more than. If it evolved with the times and was more interactive that would be great.
