The Angel, the Devil and the Human

About the Story

You are in the waiting room of the first circle of hell. An office that was recently occupied by the devil, who is now out here looking suavely, has a sign on the door handle saying "Gone to a meeting in heaven - - - Back in 5 decades". A living human, who is wanting to go to heaven, is also here, cooing at the utilitarian craftsmanship of the impsí pitchforks and codpieces. An irritated angel is sitting on one of the chairs, taking out a scroll of dates and yawning and muttering to himself. All three of them are waiting for you!

This is a twist on the Fox/Chicken/Corn puzzle.

Editorial Reviews

Delron Review Compilation
It's the chicken/corn/fox puzzle with a different theme. If you already know the answer, there is nothing for you here. If you don't, you might have fun solving the puzzle, but there's nothing especially deep going on here. Implementation is the barest minimum. The game explores no themes and has no conflict beyond its one, simple puzzle.

It's not *bad* per se, the author even says that he wrote it in the course of a couple days, but the result is a small, hollow thing. For its solution, the game offers a fanfare on the level of a kazoo toot. Meh.
