"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," a popular science fictions comedy series of books by Douglas Adams found a place on several platforms after it first appeared on BBC Radio 4 in 1978.
Apart from five books, a movie and a TV series, Adams also helped bring out a text-adventure computer game based on the series in 1984.
On the game's 30th Anniversary, the BBC has now updated the game and released it with modern graphics and software.
However, the game has managed to retain all of its charm and brilliance despite the influx of all things modern.
The revamped version of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' Game happens to be extremely funny since it sticks with the original story from the books.
Players step into the shoes of Aurthur Dent, who wakes up in the first book to realise that his home is about to be destroyed.
After this, he is then introduced to the fact that Earth will be destroyed in a few hours since the planet is being cleared to make way for a space highway.
What's amazing about the game is that player's aren't always sure of what they're supposed to be doing, there by allowing it to surprise players every now and then.
Those who are familiar with Adam's should have no trouble in solving many of the puzzles in the game. Apart from the abundant scoops of humor and puzzles, players will also like the minimal visual and peppy sound effects that the game has.
However, it is worth noting that the game will appeal more to players who have tried and enjoyed text based adventures before.
For those interested in all things old, there's another version of the game that has been around on BBC's website for a long time. Give it a try over here.
