A short but straightforward old alan game about getting to IFComp, July 5, 2017
by MathBrush
Related reviews: less than 15 minutes

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.

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.
