Above and Beyond! Above and Beyond! is a single player freeware piece of Interactive Fiction, though it could also be classed as an HTML text adventure. The game was developed using the Text Adventure Development System (T.A.D.S.)

The player takes the role of a computer programmer, Alex, arriving for work at their new job. As they approach the building they realise that they have forgotten their ID card. Thus begins the first puzzle, how to get into the building, and an adventure involving the mysterious disappearance of company employees.

Being text based the game is, naturally, entirely keyboard controlled. The player may access previously entered commands via the up/down arrow keys. Other features include Save & Restore options, the ability to record moves, and a limited hint system.

Some portions of the game are timed, i.e they must be completed within a fixed number of 'moves', and failure to complete them correctly will render the game unwinnable. [source:mobygames]
