A Grim Admixture, August 2, 2009
by AmberShards (The Gothic South)
Baluthar features horror tinged with science fiction, in a rare example of where elements of the two genres fuse into a cold, grim, dreary concoction. (Yes, that is praise!) It has a rather rich back-story and gives you a flavor of dread with an opening quote from Ecclesiastes (one of the heaviest books in the Bible). With all this said, it doesn't go for the atmospheric or emotional jugular, but rather presents puzzles along the way that -- if they worked -- would support the unfolding of the story nicely. Unfortunately, all progress halts at the door scene. The answer isn't too hard to figure out, but it just doesn't work. It's a shame, really. I was looking forward to seeing how Baluthar turned out.

I assume people have been downvoting this review for the same reason I just did -- because its assertion that the door puzzle solution doesn't work (IE is technically broken) is simply incorrect.
