The above screenshot was accurately reproduced to represent how the game looked on a green-screen terminal; it's been many years since I had access to a VAX. The game consisted of adventurers roaming around the VAXMUF dungeons collecting treasure, trading, and killing other adventurers, thus gaining points and experience which in turn gained access to magical spells.
Having more recently attempted a Google search for VAXMUF and discovered that it didn't turn up much, I decided to upload a few details of the game here for posterity's sake, including a very limited "playable" demonstration. If you weren't at Strathclyde University back then and didn't play VAXMUF then you'll probably not find much of interest here. Much of the information on this site has been auto-generated from the original files (including original spelling and grammar mistakes!).
