Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide

A short, minimalist looting session with simple puzzles, apparently based on an earlier game. No real surprises here, unless you count the fact that it's written in TADS rather than GWBASIC. Contains a maze.

-- Carl Muckenhoupt

The two things I *did* like about MANSION was that at the finish you are given your score in a list, which details what your point-winning actions were; and there's a fairly original way of getting the 10 points for the Ming Vase - one of the treasures. Other than that I could detect no "enhancements" - locations in this mansion are poorly described, actions you are required to perform are often illogical; and to cap it all the puzzles are, at best, very feeble.
