Adventure Mode

Adventure Mode is derogatory slang for an interface which is text-based, and where you have to type repeated, syntax-pedantic commands, in order to move forwards. It is called adventure mode after the game adventure in the 60s, which required the exact words it was looking for, in the right order, in order to understand the action you intended.

Indicative of a very broken interface method.
