Another thing I like about Jack's version of Super Wumpus is that one doesn't hunt to kill, but instead uses immobilizing darts to tame it. This seems to anticipate the greater environmental awareness needed in today's world when dealing with Wumpi and other endangered species.
From what I can tell, the wumpus is no longer on the endangered species list. In fact, entire herds of wumpi have been spotted on the Raspberry Pico at

The port of BBC Basic to the Raspberry Pico now works well enough for wumpus hunting. In particular, an adapted version of Gregory Yob's original code is now one of the example programs that run on Pico.
