The year is 1943. As an RAF officer stranded in Occupied France, you have one aim - to get back to Britain. The only way to do this is to try to pass as a Frenchman, but if your French isn't good enough you risk capture and interrogation by the police or even the Gestapo. Even the simplest tasks - from buying food to taking buses - place you at risk. And to add to your problems you've got limited funds: "Should I hitch a lift or take the train?", "Do I sell my belongings or get a job?"
Whatever you decide to do, this is short. And there are always people willing to denounce you...
French On The Run is that rare combination: A truly educational program that's also a thoroughly enjoyable game. This text adventure not only tests your grammar and vocabulary, but your knowledge of France and the French way of life. And as your French improves the language problems get harder and the situations become progressively more dangerous.
There are four toures to complete in sequence - you need the password from the last before attempting the next. The standard of French required is about O Level, though on the last route it rises to just below A Level.
