I am not the Brian Rushton who is the author of the Plasma Master books.

I give one star for each of the following criteria:

-Polish (no or few implementation errors or typos or bugs, nice styling for web games)
-Interactivity (do I feel part of the story? For kinetic fiction, do I feel invested in the action?)
-Descriptive writing
-Emotional impact (any emotion, whether awe, pathos, fear, disgust, etc.)
-Would I play it again?
