I assume it's aimed at beginners and should be pretty entertaining for those not too familiar with IF. There are only a few puzzles that need to be solved and the game itself offers enough to drive the player into the right direction. Playtime is somewhere around 5 minutes I guess.
It's well written with enough detail to keep you interested in the story. The ending is a bit simple; I expected a kind of twist which didn't come. A few bugs are still in it, but nothing too serious.
As far as the puzzle, they're fairly straightforward and obvious, though some actions that might have worked weren't implemented. (Spoiler - click to show) You can't reach the donut from your bed, but can't turn your bed on it's side and climb it either. You also have to contend with a string tied around the donut. If you can't break the string, you'd think you can just eat around it or break the donut or something.
There were some side references that were cute (the fountain didn't have what I crave!), and the writing style was very informal, which made the game a little more fun.
The game took about 30 moves for me to solve, so it wasn't difficult, but for a beginning player, that would be great to introduce people to IF. For the more experienced, some easter eggs would have been nice. (Such as allowing you to think about "them" or something.) All in all, it's a good game and complete.
