The Moonlit Tower

Author: Yoon Ha Lee
Language: z-code
Genre: Fantasy
Score: 8

"The Moonlit Tower" really impressed me with its wonderfully flowery language, amazing imagery, and non-visual descriptions as well. The puzzles are fairly intriguing as well; a scent of age-old Asian tradition and legend. However, one of the big bottlenecks felt like a guess the verb riddle to me (setting the bones), so I wasn't able to get it without consulting the walkthrough. Except for that, I didn't really have any complaints... apart from how very short the game felt. I think that was probably its biggest flaw (so to speak). Other than that, it was a great surreal IF experience.
