Cool, fun little game, September 9, 2010
by Xervosh (San Jose, Northern California)

This is a fun, neat little game that's quite short and fairly easy. It took me half an hour to solve it. Never-the-less, its well worth playing. Heck, I'm actually going to go back to the pier and, through using consciously inferior fishing methods, see if there are any other fish lurking in Lake Highwater. (Spoiler - click to show)In case anyone cares, all there otherwise seems to be in the lake is a scrawny fish, a tire, a rubber boot, and one of these: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VAX There are some nouns it doesn't recognize, and one place where the verb "examine" doesn't really work like it ought(Spoiler - click to show) (You have to just say "take rocks," in order to discover that one rock within the pile is interesting), but otherwise the parser is well-implemented, and the game really doesn't contain any frustrations or other irritants.
