In this game, you play a youth sentenced to life without parole for buying
a lollipop with a fake dollar bill. Your goal as a convicted candy
counterfeiter is to escape from prison, your "Concrete Paradise". It's
not hard to see that this game doesn't exactly take itself seriously.
But it doesn't succeed in silliness either, especially when you have to
kill a guard to escape and the game notes afterward, "You almost feel
sorry for him, because you know he has a wife and kids." I think the
author should have been more consistent in the direction he wanted to take
this game, and the lack of a uniform tone was probably one of the reasons
I found this game so disappointing. The game suffers only a few technical
gaffes, one of them being a magic word randomly not working for me, and
"get in raft" working where "enter raft" failed (though this can be
attributed to TADS rather than the author).
