About the StoryYou play as a novice glyph support clerk but no one's around but an animated burin. It seems the more experienced support clerks are either lost, got themselves un-implemented, or got stuck in a timeloop. And, of course, everyone else in Zork wants assistance too. No one said your first day on the job would be easy!
Nominee, Best Puzzles; Winner, Best Individual NPC - 1996 XYZZY Awards
-- Carl Muckenhoupt
Like much older IF, the plot is mostly an excuse for puzzles. The puzzles vary from creative to annoying. As I mentioned, it is easy to silently make the game unwinnable if you don't do things in the correct order. [...] The bottom line is this: if you are a big Enchanter fan, and don't mind the type of game which will require a few restarts, give this one a shot. If you were introduced to IF with Photopia and don't know Belboz from Krill, forget it.

An enjoyable Zork-based game with six mini-worlds, February 3, 2016
It was an enjoyable game. The NPCs are a bit outdated, but the puzzles are fresh and fun.
Zork-based games are not as popular now, though they still come out (Scroll Thief came out in 2015), but as a fan of the Enchanter series, I enjoyed this game.
Contains a hard cryptogram.
