About the StoryThe prologue to a much longer game, Stargazer features you as a young lad trying to escape the everyday routine of life underground.
[--blurb from The Z-Files Catalogue]
19th Place - 2nd Annual Interactive Fiction Competition (1996)
-- Carl Muckenhoupt
The author admits that this is a prologue for a much longer game, and as that it succeeds perfectly, with easy puzzles to set up Ali for his quest, and a limited area to explore at the outset.

Although very short, the game contains interesting objects and atmospheric locations, immediately drawing you into the fantasy world of Thran and its surrounding areas. From the start of the game, where you wake up in your house (Home Sweet Hovel) to that mysterious passage wending southwards from The Road Less-Travelled, STARGAZER maintains that other-worldly atmosphere so vital to fantasy/adventure games of this type.

A very nice little game that ends abruptly. An underground civilization., May 6, 2016
The author has done a good job building up an underground civilization, with a variety of npcs and some simple puzzles.
The activities you do are not compelling, but the game is polished and the setting is well done.
Not long, not great, but worth a play, November 13, 2012
Luckily, he learns of some danger and has to leave the underworld. You then gather items you'll need for this quest and there the game ends...
I found the descriptions to be a little bit lacking in vividness, but the puzzles are easy and well scripted. Worth playing if you have 15-20 minutes to kill.
If you enjoyed Stargazer...
