Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide

There's a new strain of mad cow disease in the village of Skebdale, possibly connected to rumors of satanic rites. You play "some sort of secret agent/vet/health inspector", following a trail of clues to track it to its source. Small, humorous, some good puzzles, a few non-fatal bugs, and a maze. Doesn't really have much of anything to do with mad cow disease.
