Though short and unfinished, Enlaya: The Prison isn't too bad of a CYOA. It's refreshing to see a work of Twine with plenty of "agency"—choices that have an affect on the game. Unfortunately, many Twine works can't be called games (or even interactive) as they are completely linear flash fictions. Thankfully, that ailment doesn't afflict Enlaya.
The writing is adequate, good at parts and less so in others, and the presentation isn't quite the (awful) stock ("Sugarcane") format that comes with Twine. The author at least increased the font size so that it was legible. Had the author not made that consideration, I probably wouldn't have bothered straining my eyes to play this game.
Despite the decent writing and abundance of choice, I found it hard to grant a three-star rating due to its rough, unfinished shape. If I could have given it 2.5 stars, I would have done so. However, I chose to round up since fun and re-playability are more important than length in my opinion.
It was certainly worth the five minutes or so that it took to play through it twice.
Very impressed with "Enlaya Chapter 1: The Prison" (Day One) so far. I know I can't offer much insight, as I'm only recently deciding that I would like to attempt creating my own video game. Your work was featured on the Twine's featured samples. There isn't much but being the first sample I've looked at so far, I was really impressed with the writing. I only wished there was more and will be looking forward to your progress! :)
