Editorial Reviews

SynTax
This is a no-frills text adventure (apart from the help system) which is great fun to play with loads of devious problems that are all logical. [...] Being written in 1982, this won't be a game with a complex parser that games such as HHGTTG or Corruption have, but it still works well.
