An overly-complicated oldschool western game, June 5, 2017
This is one of Scott Adams' later games, which are filled with unintuitive verbs and actions. If someone liked the earlier games, this would be an 'advanced' version of the earlier games.

I liked the atmosphere in this game, though. The spooky ghosts, the unusual voices, it all combined for a fun creepy feeling.

This game has a notable chemistry puzzle.

Ghost Town - A great town, January 5, 2015
This was my second IF game that I ever played. It is logical, well-thought out, with everything woven neatly together in the theme of the old west ghost town. Many sub goals to be solved: get the nails to shoe the horseshoe to the horse so you can ride the horse so you can get the (blank) so you can do (blank). Very clever.
Note: this review is based on older version of the game.

A very short game about having an uncomfortable conversation with a vaguely sinister white guy. One ending. Or is there? Ask a friend to play and then compare notes.
