Fifteen is clearly quite well-done, for what it is. I found no bugs in the code, and what little prose there is is error-free. The puzzles, as I said, are implemented well, and the author's ability to make me feel like I'm playing a Scott Adams game is nothing short of remarkable. But Fifteen is still not that all-puzzle game that I'm looking for -- it's too spare and empty, and because of this it fails to create the interest needed to sustain its intense puzzle-orientation.

The game is short on narrative, with a lot of short room descriptions, which could be fleshed out a bit. Clearly this game was never going to have a good showing due to its simplicity, but it was enjoyable none the less.

Fifteen is a comparatively simple game with the most difficult puzzle being how to have the remote working when you arrive at the security boxes containing the diamond (green) and ruby (red). [...] There are only four treasures to collect so it isn't a long game. Quite enjoyable but nothing special.
