A children's story with great production values, June 4, 2016
I played the sequel to this game before this one. In both of the games, the details are really attended to; the graphics are well done, the writing is polished, and the game is segmented into nice, easy segments.

This game is about a house with a magic inhabitant. Crazy stuff happens all of the time in this house; lava, magic rooms, moving pictures, etc.

I didn't really get caught up in the game, but it is well done.

Cute CYOA for young readers, November 21, 2013
by streever (America)
The blurb really nailed this one; this is a cute CYOA that might be a fun read for young people.

I think the text is a little long for young people, and I think it could use some editing and paring down to make it more readable, especially for the target audience of children reading on the web.

It's a kids game., November 28, 2013
While it's not anything to write home about, this game holds you interest throughout. It's not great, but that's because it's designed for kids. As an adult, it's not bad, though it's not especially good either.

Child-friendly CYOA (or other interface that's not traditional parser) by blue/green
Most of the games I see on the "appropriate for children" lists are pure parser IF. Are there kid friendly games that have a more accessible interface? CYOA, hyperlink, hybrid parser--any interface that offers some help in figuring out...
