1 of 1 people found the following review helpful:A homebrew web parser game with minimalistic old-school dino style!, December 18, 2018
Escape from Dinosaur Island is a homebrew parser game that features nice coloring and styling.
The parser has most of the weaknesses of homebrew parsers in general, mostly a lack of synonyms or responses for things like 'get up' or 'push basket'. However, this is alleviated by generous in-game hinting of the correct verbs.
The plot and gameplay are Scott-Adams-esque: each room has an item or two, the plot is mostly scenery for the fun setting and puzzles, and most of the gameplay is bringing the right item to the right place.
If you like that style of gameplay (like I do), then this will be a fun little nugget of gameplay.
