Old game I played

I used to play a game around 1992/1993. It was a computer at a school I went to. I was bored so the teacher used to let me play. All I remember is I was some person walking around. A message would pop up and say "You are in front of Miss bla bla's house what do you want to do?" I put bla bla because I cannot remember the name. But random messsages would pop up in the game when I walked around in the game. It may have been an old DOS game being it was early 1990's maybe it was on Windows 3.1 or earlier maybe. I just remember playing it. Seems like it was a game where I would be on some mission.

Just because the OP does not come back in 3 or 4 days to reply, does not mean he will not come back and reply.

Unfortunately there are a lot of games that may meet this description. The Zork series, for instance, or maybe even Hugo's House of Horrors. One would really need more information to narrow it down. Information such as whether or not it used graphics, whether or not it used a text parser (you entered text commands such as "walk east" or "kick pumpkin"), and whether or not i was a fairly new game at the time you played it. Any other plot details, no matter how small, may be useful as well.

Seems like you entered a command. I only played it a few times. So cannot remember much. I just figured what I described would tell enough. But Hugo's House of Horrors sounds famillar.

Here is some information about Hugo's House of Horrors.

The reason I mentioned it is because it came out in 1990 (making it fit the general timeframe), had both DOS and Windows versions, and was the only game of the genre I have had contemporary experience with (I probably first played it when I was five or six around 1994). I think it came on one of those "Software of the Month Club" shareware discs.
