Good fun puzzle, January 26, 2018
by Ewan

This is the first text based game I have played in a long time ( last was gorm on the acorn platform in the mid 90s )

The puzzles were challenging, yet easy enough for me to make progress & keep interest in the game. The problems presented are the kind of thing that left me wondering how to solve it in the small hours of the morning. The world that the story is enclosed within is an interesting place to wander & explore.

Based on my positive experience of playing calypso I am now searching for more Z machine games.

Challenging for a beginner, January 23, 2019

Calypso was a fantastic introduction into text adventure games.

Would highly recommend for a beginner who wants a (surmountable) challenge!
