About the Story

"Ahhhh! Another can of refreshing Coca-Cola! You sigh in contentment as you partake of the sweet carbonated beverage, so recently purchased. But what's this? The dispenser light is still on! You can select another! You pause, though. The labels seem to be different than they were before,..." [--blurb from The Z-Files Catalogue]

Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


What would happen if corporations began paying IF authors for product placement? A hysterical sendup of major IF titles, some of them written by the original authors; most of the game's six scenarios are very easy (one can be solved in a single self-evident move) but require knowledge of the original game to understand. Highly recommended.

A refreshing, satisfying ten minutes!, March 11, 2009
by ArtrexDenthur (Texas)
This game was really short, but I liked it a lot; the Coke commercial joke is present in almost every sentence, which I thought was really funny, though it could drag if you're having trouble. It has six famous games, or rather one scene/puzzle each from them: Adventure, Curses, Planetfall, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Grip, and a Bear's Night Out. I assume that, if you've played them before, you should almost immediately know what to do, but I'd only played Adventure, Planetfall, and Hitchhiker. Good fun, if you're looking for a quick brainteaser.

Ha ha ha, Adware, May 21, 2010
by tggdan3 (Michigan)
Okay, I kind of blasted another game for being adware, but this one was way funnier.

First of all, it makes no secret of the fact that it's adware, and no attempt to be a real game. Instead, it just places coca-cola references all over other people's games, such as Adventure, or A Bear's Night out.

The games are basically demo versions of other games, using the coke machine to go between them. More of a joke or parody than adware.

The game is a litte under-implemented, not understanding cola as coca-cola, and fill bottle with coke doesn't work, you need to fill bottle while you are near coke.

The game is kind of long for what it is- but cute nonetheless. You don't want it to be too long, condsidering it's one big joke, and i'm not sure it it's techinically parody as far as the authors of other games are concerned. Something to pass the time, but nothing to get hung up about.

If you enjoyed Coke Is It!...

Dr. Sinister is at it again! The Concordance of Powered Response isn't entirely clear on what it is he's planning, but it's big. This is clearly a task for one of the world's mightiest champions!

A considerable number of games exist largely as the commentary of the IF community (or some subset of it) upon the medium and the community itself. These works are likely to be befuddling to outsiders, but provide windows onto blah blah...
