Universal Hint System
|This article needs additional citations for verification. (January 2010)|
The Universal Hint System, better known by the acronym UHS, is a form of strategy guide used for computer and video games, created by Jason Strautman in 1988. The system is designed to provide hints for solving specific parts of games without including spoilers. The strategy guides are primarily distributed in a UHS file format, readable using a UHS reader program.
Since the system's creation, UHS readers have been made available for various platforms, including DOS, Apple Macintosh and Microsoft Windows. The current versions of the official readers are proprietary software products. An official Internet website, UHSWeb went online in 1998, allowing access to UHS guides via web browsers, including text-based web browsers such as Lynx.
