Off-Site Reviews


Typing hint will bring up little bits of info, there are also footnotes which you have access to for further clues. A beginner will find this feature very useful. Sometimes you are told you don't have something, but on accessing the Inventory shows that you have it. This was very annoying and frustrating, in places the spelling is a bit off.
