3 of 4 people found the following review helpful:I think I like the concept of this game more than the actual game, May 15, 2017
My interest for Save the World in 7 Moves was piqued after I read Sobol's review, which described it as a Rematch-style replay puzzle that manages to fit a vast amount of puzzle-solving into the Twine format. That is indeed true. The puzzles are the high point of the game: some challenging, some not particularly logical (as befits the surrealism of the plot), but I stuck it out and felt that the game rewarded my persistence. I'm particularly impressed with (Spoiler - click to show)the Emporium puzzle. I'd quite like to know the code that went into that.

Concerning the old lady: (Spoiler - click to show)"thrice thrice" means "nine times", not "three times."

Huh, I completely skimmed over the fact that she said (Spoiler - click to show)"thrice" twice (heh!) If I'd noticed it, I think I would have assumed it was a typo. Thank you; I've edited my review accordingly.

> I can't tell whether the author is going for a Porpentine-style expressionism or simply isn't a native English-speaker
- it's probably the former, since the author is a Porpentine fan (see their other works).

If you want to comment on my English grammar (which will be much appreciated, since I know very well it's far from perfect) - please be more clear and elaborate.
I often mess up articles, for example (there are no articles in my native language); and when dealing with such subtleties as the correct usage of singular they, mistakes are inevitable.

Grammar is a barbarism for ghrammatics, another word for composition as in handwriting, font, format, spacing, punctuation, the looks whereas I correct diction as in register, declension, spelling, the meaning.
Also English has been dead for 1000 years sith the Norman Conquest; everyone talks in "Einglish" now. I don't use standard language but reform.
the: definite singular common who; definite plural common they; definite singular neuter that; definite plural neuter those.
a: indefinite singular common one; indefinite plural common some; indefinite singular neuter it; indefinite plural neuter some.
