Disappointing, the seventh adventure from Brian Howarth that I've played, and the only one so far that has not been enjoyable. No sense of menace from the creature stalking you. As I enjoy mapping, the only redeeming feature was mapping the maze and the realisation that the maze wasn't really a maze!

Artificially made difficult by vocabulary tricks and having to examine undescribed scenery. I managed to enjoy some of the the puzzles, but the overall experience is awkward. The version I have on ZX Spectrum has an interesting bug: the larder, a location, is also an object - it can be taken and dropped anywhere, and therefore behaves like an unlimited container.
