The Thief would have been better, June 12, 2010
(Warning: This review might contain spoilers. Click to show the full review.)This is a remake of Zork I- kind of.
Well, instead of playing the adventurer in Zork I, you are playing the troll, from the troll room. Brandishing your bloody axe, you wait for adventurers to show up so you can kill them.
The game is very repetitive and boring- you can't leave the room, so you just wait for another guy to show up.
The writing is clever, for fans of Zork I and users of inform. It's cute when you examine yourself, or when the thief shows up, but other than that it's just a joke game.
I would be interested in seeing Zork: A Thief's-Eye View, or Zork II: A Wizard's-Eye View much more. When that comes out, let me know. Even playing as the bat would have been more interesting. As a joke "game", however, it is cute.
