Yes, it was a graphical game.
It was a search game as I recall and the Wumpus was also on the move.
The Poly88 used a memory mapped graphics. Other machines like the Atari 400/800 could, with minor modifications, run such a program. The Poly88 used a course graphics. Each character location could have a 3 high by 2 wide black/white block patterns ( let me see, that would be 128 different graphical patterns, as I recall ).

I ran "Hunt the Wumpus" on my Poly88. I don't recall if it was part of their games collection or I typed it in form some book.
The “Hunt the Wumpus” I’m thinking of is actually graphical.
