A nice little game with quirky humour. Fairly small, not very challenging, but a bit of fun. Has a very 80s feel to it - I remember playing it at primary school!




Parser/Vocabulary (Rating: 6/10)

Basic, but sturdy.

Atmosphere (Rating: 8/10)

The descriptions aren't very verbose, but they convey the atmosphere well.

Cruelty (Rating: Polite)

A couple of instant deaths if you're not prepared, but most of them are signposted by the descriptions of the preceding rooms.

Puzzles (Rating: 5/10)

Pretty straightforward, especially once you have mapped the game and seen what objects are available.

Overall (Rating: 7/10)

I like it. Quirky, fun and easy to play.
