"Without a clue" is definitely one of the better games I've played.
The setup is quite funny and the remarks as you play made me laugh more than once.
Some of the puzzles are hard, but then again isn't that what adventure games is all about?
None of them are "obscure" or unsolvable if you take your time and think about them.
The atmosphere is good and I felt that there was a flow in the game that made it easy to follow.
Not a game to be recommended to first time players, but definitely a great game to battle on a dark and cold winter night.

Sherlock 2008, April 25, 2008

Uses the exact same idea as Infocom's 80's Sherlock game - you play as Watson instead of Sherlock. Even starts the same way, with you outside 221B Baker Street about to enter. The writing is a decent stab at apeing the Conan Doyle style, the puzzles are too obscure and unclued though. I knew pretty quickly the location I wanted to visit, but even after exploring all the other locations allowed first, it still wouldn't open up that area. Highly frustrating. The ADRIFT language used to write this game didnt help much either, not the author's fault but some annoying limitations in its parsing became evident.
