Editorial Reviews

IF-Review
A Spoonful of Scotch
"A Sugared Pill" bills itself as the first and probably the last interactive fiction game about Scottish politics. It has an odd, whimsical plot about political skullduggery, with old-fashioned puzzles, social humor, and sometimes-shaky implementation. Some of the humor is a bit alien to an American player, but enough of it comes through to give the story its own considerable charm. Emily Short
