But that means you'll never play my game! (If I ever make one.)
Gleaming the Verb
: How do you make Portal even more fun? Turn it into a series of word puzzles. Rating: 2.
: A kid gets turned into a robot ... and wants to be human again?! That's not normal. Rating: 5.
: How did Interface wake up next to this game?! Rating: 1.
Yon Astounding Castle! of some sort
: The entire game is written in ye olde english. Imagine it being read aloud in a Scottish accent to double the good, cheap laughs. Rating: 7.
: Washed-up private eye solves riddles to unconver the world's most clichéd conspiracy. The story could have been a bit more interesting had it not tipped its hand so early. Rating: 4.
: If some weirdo walks up to you and offers you an ascot, just say no and move on. I mean in this game, not in real life. Rating: 3.
The Believable Adventures of an Invisible Man
: Interesting look at how an invisible person would have a harder time hiding than a normal person. The puzzles and environment are messed up, though. Rating: 5.
zork, buried chaos
: Want some reinterpretation of an Infocom classic? Course you don't! Rating: 2.
: The author has a good horror story in mind, but should ask Santa for a copy of Strunk & White this Christmas. Rating: 7.
: Last year's second place winner will probably win something again. Good, challenging puzzles, tight writing. Rating: 7.
Grounded in Space
: If your kid misbehaves, don't send him off to an asteroid mining colony as punishment! Make him play this game instead. Rating: 2.
: You're a cat burglar trying to steal a chalice from a museum, but the museum is apparently in the twilight zone. I don't get it. Rating: 5.
The Grand Quest
: You're on a math and riddle-filled quest to find a goblet. You can get goblets much more easily in the Atari 2600 game Dragonfire
, and they're not even the best treasures in that game. Rating: 3.
: You've screwed up your singing audition, so you have to screw up all the other girls' auditions. A bit too wordy and way too hard, but I like the cattiness! Rating: 6.
Rover's Day Out
: You're in a VR simulation of domestic and doggy life, but it's really about space travel, artificial intelligence, and a pink interdimensional pillow. An interesting headache. Rating: 6.
: More VR BS. Rating: 4.
The Duel in the Snow
: Simple story about a pistol duel in Russia. I don't think it takes place "in Soviet Russia..." Sorry. Rating: 5.
: You wake up stranded on an island, and someone has actually left you a note saying that the volcano is going to blow. Not as cool as a Jimmy Buffet song. Rating: 5.
: Long 300-point game in which you walk around looking for treasures. No one will ever finish it. Rating: 3.
