Off-Site Reviews

The puzzles themselves are nonsensical; sometimes typing HELP will get you a hint, other times not. The atmosphere of the game is badly fragmented; items and locations are thrown together without the slightest rhyme or reason. The parser is unresponsive at best and damnably frustrating most other times. There are a few funny bits of text -- the chess grandmaster in particular is rather humorous -- but most of the attempts fall on their face. (Molley the Mage)

This game is not just bad, but unspeakably so, and it's uniformly bad; the writing, the puzzles, the atmosphere, the plot, the NPCs, the room descriptions, the attempts at humour are all miserable. If there was an award for the world's worst adventure game, this game would be an obvious candidate. In addition, this game must be the most bug-infested piece of software it's ever been my misfortune to try; it actually seems as if the author hasn't even tried playing his own game once, or he would have found the bugs immediately.

I then found that I could open almost anything. I opened a policeman, a pigeon, a dog, my gran and even objects that I did not even have in my possession. The game was now becoming a pain but the final crunch came when I began to examine my leather jacket. It was a smart jacket with a small pocket that you could open and close. As I could not find any use for the jacket I dropped it in my granny's house. Later in the game I used 'INVENTORY' and lo and behold, I found that I still had the pocket. [...] The next command I entered was 'QUIT'.
