Hypnotist of Ladies
by David Cornelson

Hypnotist of Ladies is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2012 by David Cornelson. This game participated as track 16 in the Apollo 18+20: The IF Tribute Album event.

In this small one-note game, you play as the Hypnotist of Ladies. Your plan is to hypnotize all the ladies.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.

*** The End ***



Also, supposedly there are people on the busy Sidewalk, but they're not implemented.


In that game you scored your-score out of a possible 5, in some turns, earning you the rank of ranking.


I note that the game is fundamentally broken with scoring. There's nothing stopping you from looking at the same ladies five times, earning five points, and ending the game right away.
