I'd wonder why the author bothered to write it at all if I hadn't read the far more interesting accompanying documentation: he wanted players to give $10 to zoos towards buying hippos. Sadly, I doubt this game would convince anyone to do anything other than delete it from their hard drive as soon as possible.

Yes, I know that in five moves I had completed it. I know the parser was dodgy and only accepted about ten words. I know the descriptions were terse. I know that there was only four rooms and one puzzle. But look on the plus side - it's got cows and chickens and eggs. As the readme document says - this is high speed farm action at its best.

Take for example the introduction room: Uncle Willy's kitchen. The text clearly states there's a door here. However, any attempt to interact with said door will provide the text "I don't understand what you want to do". You cannot open it. You cannot examine it. Even simple commands that are standard to IF such as "go north" or "n" will not work. Only the command "North" will work. Had there been any objects to interact with, this would be a major problem. But considering there's only one real object that you can interact with (the chicken feed) and you can only take it, you won't notice it as much as a full fledged IF. However, the fact that the parser cannot understand simple commands is frustrating and confusing.
The game also consists of about four rooms total and the game can be beaten in a few turns at most. Seriously, here's a walkthrough for you: (Spoiler - click to show)North, take feed, east, west, south. At best this is an excersize in monotony. At worst, this is a pitifully bad piece of IF that offers no interactivity, no depth, no story and no fun. Seriously, I can't even recommend this to new players as the parser will still throw them off and it will leave a horrible taste for the genre in their mouths after completing this IF.
I seriously can't recommend this IF to anyone except those who get a pleasure from beating talentless games in 30 seconds. There's no thinking required to beat this game, there's no depth and pretty much everything that makes IF wonderful is absent from this game. Avoid it like your ex at the mall.
