Interesting but Flawed, August 2, 2009

The premise of The Angel Curse is an intriguing one, and the first half of the game is well done, if a little buggy. The writing flows naturally and sets a dark and slightly depressing tone, and pulled me in very effectively.
Unfortunately, the second bit of the game has several problems; the tone of the writing changes from dark to somewhat silly, the ending feels very rushed (I'm at a point where I feel I'm about to make an important discovery, but instead of showing me something new and spooky, the game suddenly ends), and the ending puzzle is not clued at all - you'll probably end up either finding a walkthrough or just trying out random actions for the heck of it.
I realize SpeedIF is bound to have problems, but I don't think it would have taken that much work to fix this game up into an excellent little piece. As it is, it is worth a try for the striking beginning.
