About the Story"Ahhhh! Another can of refreshing Coca-Cola! You sigh in contentment as you partake of the sweet carbonated beverage, so recently purchased. But what's this? The dispenser light is still on! You can select another! You pause, though. The labels seem to be different than they were before,..."

When Marketing Rules The World
"Because of its very nature, Coke Is It ran the danger of being a one-joke game. What prevents it from growing old far too quickly, however, is the creativity of each of the authors involved. Everyone pulls out all the stops and gives themselves over completely to the idea, never failing to pander, at every turn, to one of the world's largest soft drink empires." (Matthew Murray)

First of all, it makes no secret of the fact that it's adware, and no attempt to be a real game. Instead, it just places coca-cola references all over other people's games, such as Adventure, or A Bear's Night out.
The games are basically demo versions of other games, using the coke machine to go between them. More of a joke or parody than adware.
The game is a litte under-implemented, not understanding cola as coca-cola, and fill bottle with coke doesn't work, you need to fill bottle while you are near coke.
The game is kind of long for what it is- but cute nonetheless. You don't want it to be too long, condsidering it's one big joke, and i'm not sure it it's techinically parody as far as the authors of other games are concerned. Something to pass the time, but nothing to get hung up about.
If you enjoyed Coke Is It!...
