Editorial Reviews

>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction

Zero One (or 01, as it likes to nickname itself) is an extremely silly game, cliche-hampered, lacking any sort of logical story, bug-ridden, and incomplete.... The ending text insists that "ZERO ONE is not yet finished... Expect a return!", but given the quality level of this game, that seems more like a threat than a promise.

A short, violent game with odd responses, August 1, 2017
by MathBrush
Related reviews: 15-30 minutes

This short game has you escaping from a prison cell.

The walkthrough encourages you to do some very odd things.

The game is short, mostly about things like finding keys and opening doors.

I think it could have been better without the strange responses.

Steer clear, October 31, 2007
by Nusco (Bologna, Italy)
Related reviews: IF Competition 2004

Short, underimplemented game about a guy escaping from somewhere. It's sci-fi, but it could be just about anything. Pointless and juvenile in its approach to story and character.

Hilariously Bad IF games by american00b
Earlier today, I felt like playing an Interactive Fiction game that is the literary and stylistic equivalent of such masterpieces as Birdemic and The Room. I still have that feeling, so if you find anything like Plan 9 from Outer Space...
