a simple way to end wars, February 23, 2014
The author seems to think this is a good beginner IF. And indeed it has many good points going for it, like a built-in hint system and, best of all, the PC won't take actions that should deem too stupid, effectively canceling possible dead ends. There's also no timed puzzles so you can go at your own pace at solving them and the puzzles are mostly fair and sensible enough, though a few require careful attention to the surroundings. Except that to win the game you need this item from (Spoiler - click to show)close to the beginning. :) but even this makes it clear you need to come back later with another item by the description to a failed action.
It features no NPCs but still tells a sensible tale of warfare and courage against adversities wrapped in finely crafted prose. I've gone through it this evening and though it doesn't let you get stuck, I had a replay to see if I was following alright.
