About the Story"It [the game] is loosely (very loosely) based on 'Alien Research Centre 1 and 2', so my sharp, incisive mind called it 'Alien Research Centre 3' ... novel, no?"
Last night's snowfall was heavy and as you enter the study you cannot help but notice the layers of snow on the frame and ledge of the window...

This game can be played independently of the first two games. This is the first PunyInform game by John Wilson that I have played. I have tried other games by John Wilson, but this is clearly the game with the strongest parser. You are never in doubt if the game understands commands like LOOK BEHIND or LOOK UNDER 'object' and the game understands commands like GET ALL FROM BIN (fictive example).
This is the second PunyInform game I play, and as the first one (Tristam Island Demo) I rarely notice that I am playing a game with a library optimized for 8-bit machines. Well, if you go looking for unimplemented verbs you will find them, such as SING, PRAY, BLOW etc. though such verbs can easily be implemented if the author wants to. Fortunately, the game tells you whenever you try to apply a verb not known by the game.
EDIT: The previously mentioned bugs are not present in the newest version.
The game is fairly easy and can be completed without maximum points. Thus I played it twice to get the last points. Recommended.

You've practiced long and hard for PotionComp, but Grusilda won't give up her title so easily. UGH! Curse that Grusilda! A one-room potion-brewing spell-casting parser puzzler, where things might go opposite the way you planned.
