About the Story

In this short silly game, you play as someone on Mars visiting the pretend Eiffel Tower that aliens built in the past. Features Nostradamus and a hose-pipe and not much else.

Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide

Martians are into the habbit of building replicas of earth's monuments in this simple little game. As in many SpeedIF games the puzzles are almost non-existant and the whole game feels quite rushed. Still could bring a smile if you are into the spirit of SpeedIF. See the other Speed IF #4 games for different takes on the same premise.

All the Pieces, but That's About It, November 22, 2009
by Nick_Hayden (Indiana)
Related reviews: SpeedIF4

All the SpeedIF entries show evidence of their quick writing, but this one, while humorous, feels more like a cobbling of pieces than the previous ones. It has the requisite appearance of the Eiffel Tower, Nostradamus, and a bathroom, but it has little sense of narrative or character; most of the setting exists because it has to exist.

All in all, a somewhat disappointing, even for a SpeedIF, with little to help it stand out from the crowd of other SpeedIF4 entries. (It does have the distinction of not being located in Paris, at least.)
