Author: David Linder
Language: TADS2
Genre: Science fiction
Score: 4

This isn't a completely awful game. It's easy to think that it is, because you'll die in the first 15 moves. And you will die. There's no avoiding it... unless you look at the walkthrough. And the reason you'll die is because the author absentmindedly changed the name of a piece of scenery in the start room description, but didn't rename the actual scenery object that you need to open in order to live (or possibly vice versa). If you can make it past the first 15 moves, you'll encounter what would seem to be a first attempt at IF. Not a particularly stellar one either. Some rooms even lack descriptions, few scenery objects are implemented. But there is a cohesive story, at least.
