Do you wanna rock? (Rock!) I said, do you wanna rock? (Rock!) Then you need to try out Champion of Guitars, the latest step in the evolution of the music videogame. (It's a text adventure!)

Ahem.

I was sittin' 'round my apartment one day,
I got out my guitar and I started to play,
Well I riffed and I wailed and the words came to my lips,
I sang, "You know what kind of game will get me shakin' my hips?"

A TEXT ADVENTURE!
Cast down from the Metal Gods!
A TEXT ADVENTURE!
But man, what are the odds?

Well my leathers are tight and my hair is long,
And I'm bangin' my head while I'm playin' my song,
I'm typin' in words and the parser's feedin' back,
Press red! Press blue! That's some hardcore rock attack!

IT'S A TEXT ADVENTURE!
With a core of molten steel!
YEAH, A TEXT ADVENTURE!
Baby baby, this stuff is for real!

Champion of Guitarsis, in fact, a text-adventure version of Guitar Hero. Written by Bill Meltsner, the game takes place in a seedy cantina on Tuesday night, a sort of "open guitar night" when anyone with the urge can get on stage, pick up a fake plastic guitar and try their luck. And now it's your turn to step up. Do you have the stones to keep the drunken, unruly crowd happy?

Rock out with your conjunctive clauses out here. (Rock!)
