You should play Bellclap. But you should play it by following David Welbourn's annotated walkthrough. The rest of this review will explain (a) why you should play the game, and (b) why you should not try to do it on your own.

I liked this review, but my experience with the game was very different. I didn't find it unplayable at all - in fact, I found it relatively easy (compared to most puzzle-oriented IF), logical and fun. This is a subjective judgement, of course, but I'm surprised that you found it so hard. I don't remember being stuck on it for a minute, and I'm not a very skilled puzzle solver.

Really? But how on earth did you guess that in order to get this guy through a thunderstorm, you must (Spoiler - click to show)sacrifice a sheep and then (Spoiler - click to show)use the blood to create a statuette? I can see absolutely no reason to believe, in advance, that these things could possibly be helpful; or that the second action is possible at all.

After all these years, I cannot remember what the puzzle-solving process was like. I'm pretty sure the game hinted at what to do, though. Maybe the hints are not well placed, and they can be missed? I'd have to play it again to give you an answer.

I found this review exactly correct. I managed to work out the sheep-sacrifice by myself, but after that...
