Made me laugh, March 19, 2015
by Victor Gijsbers (The Netherlands)

This is a speed IF written on the premise that there are floating children and you have to bring them back down. It's also a Christmas game.

Like most speed IF, The Stars Are Right is very short and revolves around a single idea. In this case the startling plot development and ridiculous solution made me laugh, and that means that the game succeeded at what it was trying to do.

Within the context of a speed IF competition, this might get 3 or even 4 stars. Outside of that, I'll stick with 2.
