It's one lone puzzle, and thus a little difficult to rate. On the one hand, the writing and coding are both quite good; I found neither bugs nor English errors anywhere in the game. Then again, this level of excellence was sustained for a remarkably short time. Consequently, I can't rate the game very highly -- there's just not enough there.

A tiny parser game with one puzzle: tying two strings, May 9, 2016
This game has about 5 or 6 items. The one puzzle is clever, but it's it. For that one puzzle, the author has made a very polished game, with the responses you'd hope for implemented, and descriptive writing.
If you like brainteaser-type puzzles, this is a good game for you. But it is very, very short.
