Ka is light on story and long on puzzles. If you're an aspiring Mensa member, or just someone who likes doing the crossword, this one will intrigue you. Some of the puzzles are quite ingenious; one, involving a mechanical beetle, was a lot of fun, although my head spins at the thought of trying to code it. Technically, Ka is impressive: considering that the main element of play involves a lot of custom vocabulary and verbs, the lack of bugs is commendable.

The narrative of Ka is revealed a bit at a time, but is very rich and easy to get lost in. For me, of the games I played from this collection, Ka had the largest sheer amount of environmental wonder -- the stuff that makes otherwise sterile games like Myst so fascinating for so many people. (The runner up would probably be Andrew Plotkin's Dual Transform.) The sterility of beautiful puzzle-bound environments even integrates well with the game's theme.
