Gnome Ranger is a text adventure game by Level 9 released in 1987.[1] It was followed by a sequel, Ingrid's Back.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

The game is a standard text adventure with limited graphics on some platforms. It comes with a short novella by Peter McBride ("The Gnettlefield Journal") explaining Ingrid's predicament and setting the background to the story. Gameplay is similar to the earlier Level 9 adventure Knight Orc, which uses the same game engine (KAOS). The player must explore the forest while collecting useful items and interacting with various non-player characters to solve puzzles and problems.

Plot[edit]

The gnome Ingrid Bottomlow has displeased her family by her un-gnomelike behaviour, such as going off to university and getting an education. She has been banished from her village and teleported into the middle of a dangerous forest, and must find her way out.
