Sophie's Adventure

Author: David Whyld
Language: Adrift
Genre: Fantasy
Score: 5

A large game I found more notable for its bugs than anything else. Each is minor, but taken together they really bring down the quality. (For example, the second room proclaims an exit that doesn't exist, I repeatedly got dropped out of conversation menus with no explanations, my score once "increased" from 2 to... 2, the walkthrough doesn't match the map, and the game performed an action I typed right after telling me it was impossible.) It definitely could have done with a lot more beta testing. After a while I tried to turn to the walkthrough, but since I couldn't get that to work and I didn't get the impression I had advanced very far, I gave up.
