Very short and plain speed-IF (RR #14), November 24, 2012

The Onion of Destiny is a four-turn-minimum game set on the top of the Eiffel Tower. The sole puzzle is quickly figured out and the game over in a matter of minutes. You can also (Spoiler - click to show)just wait for a number of turns to get the alternative ending.

There is really nothing noteworthy or special about this game, there is no humour or twist that would make it stand out even a little.

The only thing of interest I've noticed was a sentence missing a word ("The fistfight is far too complicated to possible"), but that's it. :-)

Averting the End of the World (in 5 minutes), November 8, 2009

When I tried my first SpeedIF, chosen at random, I didn't know what to expect. Now I do: SpeedIF entries are quick, basic, and, at their best, a great five-minute diversion.

The Onion of Destiny is such a diversion. It rises above many of the other entries in this batch by giving the impression of existing in a larger world. To avert the end of the world, the player has to cut an onion with a ceremonial knife at the top of the Eiffel Tower before 10. It's a humorous set-up and feels part of a larger Ghostbuster-esque narrative.

A solid game for being made in an hour.
