Genre: Escape/Puzzles
Score: 8

Except for a few minor bugs, "Evacuate" was a fairly solid game that I found to be reminiscent of the Infocom games of yore, especially "Planetfall". I found the writing and puzzles both to be of very high quality, and the game itself to be very enjoyable. The only issues I found were missing responses to fooling around with a rug, and a scope problem with one item, though neither of these bugs negatively affected the gameplay in any way. The one mark against it is the maze which, though an interesting job in dynamically random exits, was somewhat frustrating to navigate because of the very way the exits change randomly each time you enter a room.
