Game Details


31st Place - 11th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition (2005)

Editorial Reviews


Phantom failed entirely as a representative of the horror genre, and hardly won any points back even as a puzzlefest. Most of its puzzles could be subdivided into two categories: (fairly generic) mazes (there were three of them), and "choose the right option or die".

A campy horror game. Fairly small, with some unfair puzzles., April 19, 2016

This game placed in the lower half of IFCOMP the year it came out. Unlike many lower placing games, it has a sincerity and a good overall plan that made it enjoyable for me to play, though I skipped out on the 3 mazes.

You are searching for the tomb of an ancient warrior king. You have to explore an abandoned, rotting town, a tower, and a cave. There are some silly instant-death puzzles that undo solves nicely, but what I found nice about this game was the underlying story concept.
