Honorable Mention - Spring Thing 2003
-- Emily Short
There are a handful of rough spots -- some phrasings (not of proverbs) that weren't immediately obvious to me and could have used more synonyms, a few places where the spelling or word use was a little off -- but not too many. It does seem to be possible to render the game unwinnable, though I am not sure whether or not this was the author's intention. There was one item that I wouldn't have thought to look for without the walkthrough, and one thing that might have been a bug.
On the other hand, it is such a friendly and generally solid piece that I had a hard time holding these minor flaws against it.
