Off-Site Reviews

Brass Lantern
There's a nice sense of urgency about the opening text, and repeating 'the phone rings' over and over again (it also pops up after the room description) is a neat way of conveying, well, a phone ringing over and over again. I've certainly been in this sort of situation, and I had absolutely no trouble getting under the skin of the PC -- or so I thought. (Iain Merrick).

[...] my first play through the game ended with shock and surprise. If there's an equivalent to being nonplussed when you're sitting at a keyboard, I was it. (Mark Musante)

The strength and charm of some games lies in their simplicity. This certainly applies to Adam Cadre’s little game from 2000 called 9:05.

Besides being very short, one of the especially notable qualities of this game is that it encourages replay. After you've played through the game at least once, you'll understand what I mean by this. An enjoyable and surprising game and just right for a casual game audience.

A humorous yarn about a person who must rush out of the house after waking up late, and yet so much more, 9:05 is as clever as its design is elegant.

Play This Thing!
9:05 is a tiny game, and everyone interested in interactive fiction should play it at least once.

The game plays smoothly with no real apparent problems [...] In the end, 9:05 is a simple game which could almost be described as puzzle-less one [...] somewhat closer in spirit to Cadre's take on Flowers for Algernon than his other more involved Photopia or I-0.
