Yet another amusing distraction., April 24, 2009
by gruelove (UK)
Related reviews: funny
Emily Short seems to have a knack for producing quality IF no matter what the genre or circumstances. This is another of her speedIF entries. Short and very easy to complete, it's no less enjoyable for that. The humour is natural and unforced and the piece is highly amusing from beginning to end.

Very well worth while playing.

Reasonably amusing speed IF, November 9, 2007
by Kake (London, England)
Related reviews: Emily Short, ***, speed IF
Very short game well, it is a Speed IF entry, after all. Reasonably amusing, no glitches that I noticed, only one typo. Possibly more fun if you're familiar with New Orleans.

I've not played much Speed IF, so take my rating with a pinch of salt.
