This is a list of my favourite ADRIFT games, which I consider are well worth a look.

1. The Evil Chicken of Doom, by Mel S (2002)
Average member rating: (6 ratings)
Richard Otter says:

The was an entry in first of the one hour competitions that sometimes spring up on the ADRIFT forum. Absolutely nothing but nothing sophisticated about it but it made me laugh the first time I played.

2. Frustrated Interviewee, by Robert Street (2005)
Average member rating: (1 rating)
Richard Otter says:

A game about a job interview? Doesn't sound very promising does it? The first part of the game is basically wandering around your living area at university. But then you get into the second part of the work, a typical fantasy game. As with all the authors work this game is origin and well written.

3. To Hell in a Hamper
by J. J. Guest
(2003)
Average member rating: (76 ratings)

Richard Otter says:

This has got to be one of the best ADRIFT games of all time, and all set in one location. The author has managed to pack so much into one location.

4. The Magic Show, by Jason Mac Innes (2004)
Richard Otter says:

This is actually one of my top five favourite games. It has a unique plot and clever puzzles. Not only that it was the authors first game. Recommendation: play this game!

5. Paint!!!, by David Whyld (2004)
Average member rating: (9 ratings)
Richard Otter says:

This is another brilliant one room game. It seems to have everything from dozy painters to meteors and even manages great replay value.

6. The Reluctant Resurrectee
by David Whyld
(2007)
Average member rating: (6 ratings)

Richard Otter says:

It is always fun when a game has an unusual player character and here you are an eyeball. The obviously results in a number of unusual puzzles based on the physical nature of being round. I loved the humour through out the game and found the puzzles just about right.

7. Requiem, by David Whyld (2006)
Average member rating: (8 ratings)
Richard Otter says:

In my view this game was completely under scored in the IF Comp of 2006. It is a supernatural time travelling thriller with multiple game endings. With characters and objects that are very well implemented it has great replay value.

8. Veteran Knowledge, by Robert Street (2005)
Average member rating: (1 rating)
Richard Otter says:

The author entered the first version of this game (Veteran Experience) in one of the three hour competitions during 2004. The author then completed completely revamped the competition entry expanding everything possible. An entertaining game.

9. Wax Worx, by Eric Mayer (2004)
Average member rating: (1 rating)
Richard Otter says:

The game begins with the all time IF classic opening 'waking up in a strange location with amnesia'. The objective is another stable of the IF world, 'escape'. The first time I played I thought it was a well-balanced story and very engrossing, and I still do.
