Yet another silly, random, and brutally unpolished game. The story is easy enough to follow - as you eventually discover, you are locked in a Garlic Cage, (Spoiler - click to show)a device that turns its victims into garlic, and presumably you are expected to try and find your way out. Personally, I wouldn't know - the game became unwinnable after 4 out of 10 points, (Spoiler - click to show)when the world turned dark and the only tool I had on hand was a rusty wire bent into the shape of a key. It clearly hasn't been tested, let alone proofread: I spent several turns trying to figure out what to do with a "garlic glove" that I was presented, which the game adamantly insisted didn't exist, until I realized it was supposed to be a garlic clove and typed in the word the game recognized. Considering that eating these cloves (gloves?) is apparently one of the main goals of the game, it's fairly obvious that the creators compiled the game and uploaded it without ever actually playing it to make sure it ran right. And again, I appear to have hit some kind of time limit without any clue as to what I was supposed to do next - was there another clove I missed, one that could've spared me a presumably garlicky fate if eaten? The game seemingly drops them into existence without any fanfare or indication of their number, so I couldn't tell you.

I agree with your recommendation. NOM3RCY is probably the worst IF programmer, bar none, and I say that not because I have a personal vendetta against him. It's that he is apparently incapable of performing even the most rudimentary alpha testing, does not know how to spell, and demonstrates a serious lack of creativity. Every game he creates features a cruel time limit. Every game demonstrates the same non-working scoring system. Every game he makes has zero relevance. He simply doesn't care, and as a result, neither do I. I'm glad you spared the rest of us the pain of playing this game.
