IF-Review
A few Minutes to a Hour
Roberto Grassi's "The Last Hour" is a brief, puzzleless Adrift game which opens with the player character being placed in a cell.

You might think that the player's main motivation at that point would be to figure out how to escape the cell, and indeed I spent a little while playing with the various objects in the room -- with no particular result. No, your task is to hang around while the backstory is gradually presented to you -- typing TALK TO CHARACTER repeatedly at one juncture -- and then to wait for the game to end. It is not a piece that leverages the interactive aspects of IF to very great effect. Emily Short

Delron Review Compilation
Not pleasant but quite thought provoking
At times, in truth, it doesn't. The writing, somewhat raw and rough around the edges, gives the game a filmed with a camcorder type of feeling. It's stark and basic and in your face. There are mistakes and I don't know if these are oversights or the fact that the author's native language is not English. Certain items could have been fleshed out more. A game set in one location - and one as cramped as a cell after a brutal race murder - needs to have more attention to detail.
