Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


A very odd early adventure using the Scott Adams interpreter. Your car runs out of gas outside an abandoned circus, and your ostensible goal is to get going again. For some reason this involves utterly destroying the circus. Despite the illogical plot, this is a straightforward game with logical puzzles and only a few guess-the-verb problems. May be best suited to novices.

-- R. Serena Wakefield
