jason finds fleece
by Gunther Schmidl

jason finds fleece is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2003 by Gunther Schmidl. It was an entry in the Speed-IF Argonaut event.

In this IF abuse modeled after robot finds kitten, you play as Jason of the Argonauts, looking for the Golden Fleece. Jason is represented as a # symbol which you'll manuever around the screen using your arrow keys.

This solution is by David Welbourn.

Aw, c'mon. Do you really need a walkthrough for this?

No walkthrough can help you with this game. But the game's instructions can. Read them by typing "I". Start looking for the fleece by typing "F".

You'll next see a randomized pattern of ASCII characters in different colours spread out over the screen. Any one of them could be the fleece; the other characters represent other related items, people, and gods. Since none of them move, you should have no trouble using the cursor keys to move you (represented by the # symbol) up beside each of them to find out what it is. (The message appears on the fourth line of the header.)

When you find the fleece, that game is over and you have won. Type any character to return to the main menu. Then type "Q" to quit, or "F" to start a new search.

Thank You to my Patreon supporters

This walkthrough is provided free of charge since I wrote this walkthrough prior to January 2015 when I began my Patreon account, and also because the work it's based on has less than fifteen locations (so I wouldn't have charged for it anyway). I've since reformatted this walkthrough to use my currently preferred style. I hope you enjoy it!

I'm still creating new walkthroughs! Larger ones too! Please visit my Patreon account if you're interested in helping me create more interactive fiction walkthroughs. I appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks again.
