Easy to make unwinnable, September 19, 2010
by Bernie (Fredericksburg, VA)

One very remarkable aspect of this game is that it continues even after you are dead. Unfortunately, this piece of Speed IF, like so many, suffers from implementation troubles. Although overall it is cute, by performing the most obvious action (Spoiler - click to show), dropping the peanut for the elephant, I unwittingly made the game unwinnable. There was no warning from the game and many moves later I finally consulted the walkthrough, only to discover this fact. Like many Speed IF games, this one is sparse in description and objects. However, at least one main object (Spoiler - click to show)the pidgeon(sic) seems to be completely unimplemented.

Birds in IF by Wendymoon
What games can you think of with birds in them? What's the bird? Is it important to the game?
