An odd piece of speed-if, June 9, 2010
by Bernie (Fredericksburg, VA)

I haven't played many speed-if games, so they might all be a bit strange. This one suffers from the problems I'd expect from speed-if: there are few locations and the NPC responds to very few conversation topics.

At the outset you arrive in a strange room with an odd old lady who is described as being stuck to the sofa singing show tunes. (Thankfully, no show tunes are sung.) The writing in the game hints at a war between the penguins and the dinosaurs, but there is little elaboration. There is little obvious motivation in the beginning of the game, but there are so few rooms and objects that your strange task becomes obvious within a few turns.

Other than a few amusing lines of description, the game holds little value as a game. The overall theme is bizarre without being intriguing and the only puzzle in the game is solved fairly quickly.
