Billed as "The Most Annoying Game of All Time," but it doesn't even come close. The joke is obvious by the second move of the game, but takes around 350 more moves to play out and isn't that funny. There isn't even a real punchline. Not so much annoying as pointless.
Another game which plays similarly but is much more interesting is Zork: A Troll's-Eye View.

Although the game apparently attempts to be annoying, it falls short even of that. I suppose that it might be annoying if I were simultaneously very persistent and unaware of the ability to put multiple commands on a line or use my up arrow, together with expecting the game to be serious, but those circumstances, and especially the last, given that the game's name is "Annoyotron", are vanishingly unlikely to come about.
I imagine that it's possible to make a game that is annoying and worth playing, but this is neither.
This game is just trying to bother you. It sends you through 350 rooms in a row to win the game.
Like many games that set out to be bad, it is not as bad as sincere games that fail. It attracted a lot of attention when it came out, mostly negative, and references to it are sprinkled about old IF discussions.
Twice as good as "The Temple of No", still not worth playing, July 27, 2017
There is not a single redeemable quality in this vapid game, and should be avoided.
If you enjoyed Annoyotron...

What a trotting krip! Since your incredible heroics in Planetfall, where you risked life and limb to save the planet Resida, things have hardly changed at all. Sure, you were promoted to Lieutenant First Class, but this only meant that...
