Off-Site Reviews


This game might have gotten a score of 7 from me in the best possible case: amusing, with some interesting puzzles, but still built from a clichéd set of ideas at the core. That'd be worth a 7 on my scale. However, I got frustrated and stuck a lot, and the READ thing was pretty annoying, and I wasn't able to finish in two hours. Sorry, but that's how it goes, I guess.

>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction

Stowaway is, for the most part, a pretty good game. It's an old-fashioned puzzlefest with a nameless PC and a rollercoaster adventure plot... It's got some colorful writing, a fun story, and is capable of producing genuine tension and horror at times... Any game that sets pointless, arbitrary limits that severely impede the player is a game that drains itself of pleasure, but all the same, I continued to grit my teeth and power through because I really wanted to see what happened next.
