22nd Place - 2nd Annual Interactive Fiction Competition (1996)
A very small game in which you have to reach a friend's house in order to start judging the entries in the Second Annual Interactive Fiction Competition (in which it is itself an entry). Takes at most 15 minutes to play in its entirety. Rather weak parser - "look at", "get", and "him" are not understood, for example. All in all, not a sufficient reason in itself to download the ALAN runtime. Has a cute reentrant ending, though.

There's nothing inherently wrong with it, it's just really short and really simplistic.

>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction
Circular structure a fun gimmick, but only for a few minutes. No real puzzles to speak of, nor much of an atmosphere. In fact, there’s really not too much to do besides wrestle with the parser.

This is a fun little Alan game (requiring an older interpreter from ifarchive.org) about running to get to playing ifcomp games on time.
The game is well-hinted; I only had one guess-the-verb problem. You basically just hail a taxi and drive over to your friend's house.
The game is on a timer, but its so short that once you figure it out, its super easy to redo. It also has a clever ending.
Games about interactive fiction itself by MathBrush
This is hopefully my last list. These are games that comment on the nature of interactive fiction or the interactive fiction community itself. The quality of these games varies wildly, and this list doesn't attempt to sort by quality....
