Spoof of Pick Up The Phone Booth And Die, by Rob Noyes

Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


Yet another variant on Pick Up the Phone Booth and Die. Extremely short, one room, and easy.

-- David Welbourn

SPAG
Well, the game is quite accurately done. That is, it gives sufficient answers to player actions, without visible holes in implementation, or missing descriptions. But the wild psychedelic charm of "Pick Up the Phone Booth and Die" is not there!

Evolution of a Joke, November 3, 2010
by tggdan3 (Michigan)
The game is cute, and it's a little bit more complex of a puzzle than the original (BOOTH). You'll probably want to play BOOTH first, because without playing it, you probably won't get this joke, which is kind of a shame. If only all the BOOTH parodies could be combined together into one big game, with all the variants, so they could be reviewed together.

As a joke, this works. It's easy and there isn't too much to do. The only thing that doesn't work is the assumption that you have played the first. Seeing them both in IFDB, one might not know which came first, and which is the joke and which is the parody of the joke.

If you're a fan of the BOOTH game, or the other parodies of it, you'll like this. If not, move on.
