About the Story

You're really hitting the ground running with this one...

As Alejandro, the latest hire at Bazbasoft, you didn't expect to be thrown into the (literal) world of Barry Basic's games on your very first day in the job. But the Speed Daemon, an old enemy of Barry, has returned, and alongside your mentor Shona and Barry himself, you need to travel through the game world and find him before he can do any more damage to the latest Bazbasoft game project!

Three puzzle games of varying difficulty blended into one, May 16, 2022

This game has the same storyline shown from multiple points of view. As you complete an easy one, a harder one unlocks. In an amusing twist, the 'help' system for each difficulty level is the PC of the next difficulty level. It's an adventuron game, and comes with a built-in map.

Each difficulty level is linear, solving one room at a time before unlocking the next room.

I found the puzzles pretty hard as the game went on. The first difficulty level wasn't too hard, but I couldn't figure out the wordplay puzzle in the second difficulty without the walkthrough (I had tried (Spoiler - click to show)GLASS and 4-letter words without success). I also had deep trouble with the wire problem, especially since the solution relied on a word not in the verb list, and the cake puzzle, well, I'm not sure how it worked even after the solution. This isn't bad, necessarily, since being stuck is a feature of puzzles, but I definitely did get stuck; other reviews say they had no problems in this game so it's probably just me.

Overall, the game was entertaining. I would have preferred some simultaneous puzzles so I could work on one while being stuck on another. I found the writing was clear and set the scene well in most problems.
