Off-Site Reviews

SPAG
Admittedly, several of your actions are not entirely logical, but the game is reasonably enjoyable with disbelief suspended: the writing conveys a degree of urgency, and the plot devices, even if not wildly original, work the way they're supposed to.

>VERBOSE -- Paul O'Brian's Interactive Fiction Page

[T]he story is worth experiencing, walkthrough or not. The author presents a very realistic and highly compelling puzzle-solving situation: you are the survivor of a plane crash. You must help your fellow passengers and somehow prevent the plane from killing you all when it explodes, as it inevitably will. This situation is a natural one for interactive fiction: you must traverse a limited area, under pressure from a time limit, solving very real puzzles with dozens of lives in the balance. Even though there are some problems with the prose and puzzles, it's still a memorable feeling to crawl through the wreckage, a situation made even more evocative by the fact that it really could happen to most anyone.
