My major problem with this game: too much seemed to be going on, and I didn't understand very much of it at all. There is a fantasy setting -- maybe -- except that some of the objects appear to be technological, rather than magical, so perhaps it is really an odd piece of SF, instead. There are peoples and individual persons with strange Fantasy Names, many of them at a time, whizzing past my head in conversations I only nominally exert any control over. There is conspiracy, disguise, revelation, a blatant pass from a serving wench, all crammed into a couple of moves, before I have had a chance to really get my bearings.

A representative of the SciFi/Fantasy genre with a somewhat vague plot, and a slight erotic touch (well, it's slight by modern standards, a few decades ago it'd probably be considered the purest porn). Contains several really atmospheric pieces (in particular, the depiction of dazed conditions has been the author's success). The puzzles, however, aren't as good: the object intercommunications aren't always clear, at least one solution would never have worked in real life, and I suspect I was able to finish the game by using an "illegal" way at one point. The built-in adaptive hints are helpful in most cases, yet they don't give away the final solution, and aren't always available when you need them. Also, there're a couple of bugs, although nothing fatal. With all these issues, it's still definitely worth playing.
