I'm looking for good examples of IF in English, Mandarin, and Castilian, especially those that could be used in a classroom setting.

★★Narrative: ★I personally enjoy the narrative and story. ★★I recommend the work as a good example of literature.

Interactivity: For playability, reader agency, illusion of freedom.

Pacing: Such as good mechanics and structure, fair puzzles, clear objectives, clear narrative breadcrumbs/hints, toys that distract from frustration, graphic map, walkthrough.

Bonus: The fifth star is only for extraordinary works. For the narrative, interactivity, fun gameplay, emotional impact, artistry, exposition of topic, use of medium.

虎姑婆文字冒險遊戲 | Grandaunt Tigress: A Chinese Text Adventure, by IFforL2 (2021)
我媽媽已經去照顧我的爸爸。 他和些鄰居被隻貓弄傷了。不只是貓:又巨大又燃燒著。沒有人見過這樣的野獸。事實證明,它逃出了*國姓爺*王本人的寵物妖怪展覽。 國王看到我們殺了他的母老虎,並沒有因此而責罵我們,才是因為我們沒有提供香火,值錢或任何朝拜。如果個無名人死了之後就變成飢餓的幽靈,我們還不應該懼怕幽靈老虎嗎? 從那天起,我們的邨莊被命名為「打貓」。
