The program presented below will play a game called "Trapped" for the HP-25 and HP-25C. It was written by Rich Messeder and appeared in the V5N6P25 issue of PPC Journal (July 1978). Thanks to Rich wherever he is today!

It's basically a high-low type of game, but it's small enough that you might even key it into an HP-25 without continuous memory.

**Instructions: **

1) Load the program into the calculator and change back to RUN mode.

2) Store the initial decimal seed into memory 0 (type STO 0)

3) Press f PRGM (this resets the program pointer to the start of the
program memory).

4) Press R/S to start. Display shows 0.1000 as the starting
boundaries.

5) Enter your guess for the number and press R/S.

6) The display now shows the new upper and lower boundaries depending on
whether your guess was too high or too low.

7) Continue playing until you correctly guess the secret number. When
you do do, the secret number will be flashed and your score (the number
of guesses you took) will be left flashing in the display.

8) For a new game, go to step 3.
