God help the designer if Womens Lib ever get hold of him'! Mad Martha is a domestic adventure game. The task is to escape the house and get into town for a night on the tiles.

Failure to clear the marital home quietly awakens the wife who proceeds to chop you up into cat meat! A neat little graphic routine cheerfully depicts the dismembering of husband Henry. (Nothing gory - honest.)

The game itself is a Hobbit-type text/graphics mixture, wherein you are given a hi-resolution picture of your present surroundings and progress - or not - by entering commands such as "GET MATCHES", etc.

The program understands a fair number of words and is very easy to communicate with.
