IF equivalent of a doodle, February 23, 2011
Produced in response to the challenge of Speed-IF 6, this lightweight entry is competently coded and can be completed in short order, but is poorly designed both as a story (the premise and micro-story seem somewhat forced) and as a game (the single puzzle isn't even clearly presented as a puzzle). This speed IF had a particularly odd assortment of seed ideas; it will be interesting to see if any of the other submissions do better.

The deficiencies of this piece are hardly unusual for speed IF, and my one-star rating is typical for the mode. The apparent quality of the coding (written in Inform 6, where haste can easily make waste) leads me to suspect that the author's other works (some of which have good ratings from small groups of players) are worth exploring.

You might need the walkthrough to discover the winning moves, but the game universe is small enough that you will likely find them through brute force with a little patience.
