Editorial Reviews

SynTax
The game is one which you will certainly not finish quickly and it will give the old grey matter a lot to puzzle over. My verdict? A really good game that you should have in your collection. Get it now!

SynTax
Frustration is spread over a large area geographically, about 180 locations at a rough count. The total score is 350 points, which are awarded for certain rooms reached and puzzles solved, and not for finding valuables. This is decidedly *not* a treasure hunt type of game, nor is there any fighting to do; although three characters in the game have to be dealt with before they allow you to continue on your travels. But in all cases violence is not the answer, and Frustration is definitely a more cerebral type of adventure.

The Jim MacBrayne games
[...] the plot is all but irrelevant to these games; the objective amounts to object- collecting. (True, in Frustration, the idea is to pull together items on your shopping list--but it doesn't really change the game significantly, since you don't find the relevant items in places you're looking for them, unless you look for honey by climbing trees in deserts.)
