(none) Quintin Stone - Interactive Fiction Review
Interactive Fiction
Role-playing Games


Author: Michael Loegering
Language: z-code
Genre: Office humor
Score: 5

Starts off with a clever and humorous (in my opinion, of course) introduction, but slowly grinds downwards from there. A real pity, because it had potential. A lot of the problems seemed to come from the rough, unpolished implementation. Little things that, taken together, spoil the atmosphere and enjoyability. There's a couple of disambiguation problems, an exit uncovered that you are never told about, major scenery objects not implemented, a room with no description, and even a section of the walkthrough that didn't seem to work for me. It's nice that there are alternate solutions to several of the obstacles. Just a shame that even most of these are so obtuse I would never have gotten them without the walkthrough.
