The 1989 film Big, in which a child wishes himself into becoming a grown-up, is probably something you're familiar with. One of the interesting elements of the movie is a graphical text-based adventure game which the main character, Josh Baskin, plays in a couple of different scenes and serves as a link between his childhood and the premature adulthood he finds himself experiencing. At the time, the game looked awesome and I really wanted to play it but, sadly, the game never actually existed.

Twenty years later, BoMToons has sought to remedy this situation by creating a little Flash game which very closely resembles the one seen in the film. There isn't a whole lot to it, as there was very little to work with from the source material (which consists of one room in a cave and one text command entered). The game, called The Cavern of the Evil Wizard, takes place entirely in that one room and is solved in exactly the same manner as in the film, but there are a few other commands in the text parser that you can play around with.

It is a neat little trip down memory lane and those of us who have a fondness for Big should get a kick out of it. Go ahead and give it a try.
