Editorial Reviews

>VERBOSE -- Paul O'Brian's Interactive Fiction Page

I don't so much mind linearity, if the line is fairly wide and provides lots of interesting stuff to look at on the way. This game, however, was reminiscent of its initial image: a long, thin line trailing its way through a trackless desert. Sure, it gets you somewhere eventually. But the trip is pretty dull.

A buggy take on the crusades and a parody of Jesus' death, July 16, 2017
by MathBrush
Related reviews: about 1 hour
This game puts you in the place of a general during the crusades.

You have to break into a city and talk to the king. There's a lot of guess-the-verb happening here.

Then you end up telling the story of Christ's death, with some parody elements. You have to reconstruct it into a more 'exciting' story to convert the king.
