The Recruit

Author: Mike Sousa
Language: TADS2
Genre: Puzzles
Score: 7

An unabashed puzzle game. As you soon discover, your entire purpose is to beta-test a "real life" adventure game. Though it's been done before, I found this game did a pretty impressive job of implementing it. The puzzles were certainly original with some clever solutions, and those are major pluses if puzzles are your game's major focus. The most freaky moment was when I restarted the game and it came up with my name for the PC, complete with the uncommon spelling. Mike included a large number of RAIF/RGIF regulars in his list of random PC names and didn't, as I briefly thought, include some kind of telepathic link. So 1 point off for disappointing me there. (Kidding)
