Out of the Study

Author: Anssi Raisanen
Language: Alan
Genre: Single-room puzzles
Score: 7

"Out of the Study" is the first one-room game I've played. The good news is that I found it well written, with both a good atmosphere and nice descriptions. The bad news is that the main and final puzzle stumped me, and there was no walkthrough or hint system that I could find. I couldn't figure out how I was supposed a guess a five digit code, when the clues I collected gave my 7 possible number segments to build it from. Maybe the tips were there in the room and I just couldn't see them. Still, the frustration factor of fruitlessly trying combination after combination soured me a little on this game, thus its lower score.
