Off-Site Reviews

I think that Cosmoserve is my favourite non-commercial text game, and certainly the all-time best AGT game. [...] The plot is delightfully interwoven, as the simple task of finding your patch file takes you on a trip through a myriad of forums, file directories, conferences and e-mail encounters. (Graeme Cree)

The novel atmosphere more than makes up for the flat characterization. The puzzles are clever and logically solved, and the plot is tightly written, with only 86 locations. (Donna McCreary Rodriguez)

CosmoServe is one of the most original ideas I've come across for a long time because about 85% of the game takes place while you're using the computer, either running programs or using the BBS. [...] The author has not only re-created the atmosphere of the BBS so that you really feel you're on-line to one, she's also managed to introduce suitable screen displays and sound effects for using the computer.

It's an excellent intermediate game with broad appeal for all hackers, text adventurers and BBS addicts. (Melissa Katz)
