Off-Site Reviews

The world itself is far more Carroll than Tolkien, and the difference shines through (though there's nothing inherently wrong with traditional I-F fantasy as it currently stands). The perfect length, nice prose, a couple of clever puzzles, and a surprisingly good parser and DOS-based game engine.

Although the scenery and items in PICKET fluctuate wildly between the mundane and the magical (a scientist and gnome apparently co- exist quite happily as neighbours), the writing is quite descriptive, and the author successfully maintains this rather odd atmosphere throughout the game.

The game has only a few puzzles and none of them are extremely difficult. Only one of them near the end had me worried for any length of time. The game has been translated I think from Swedish, but I found no spelling mistakes and only one bug involving the swan. This did not detract from the game or make it impossible to finish.
