Abstract, But Great, April 23, 2017
by ulmo
As with most of Plotkin's works that I've seen, its pretty abstract, but that's exactly what I want with this game. The puzzles are brilliant, and the whole game exudes minimalistic elegance and taste in knowing what's enough to put in. It ends a little sooner than I would've liked, considering that the puzzles, while they do get harder, don't ever seem to fully use what's available.

A one-room, one-item, one-container, one-creature game with logical puzzles, February 3, 2016
Dual Transform, by Andrew Plotkin, is one game that I think would be great for beginners without being condescending or annoying; it is also great for experienced players.

In this game, you control a console that alters the environment. You stay in the same room with the same item, but the room and item change appearance.

Once you figure out the logic of the game, it is mostly one straightforward move after another, with a couple of little sticking points that provide more satisfaction.

The writing and setting are top-notch, making this a memorable game. Having recently played "So Far", it seems that the author took some ideas from that game and concentrated/refined them into this game.
