Am I missing something?, July 12, 2009

OK. Having read the only member review for this game, and having a soft spot for humorous IF, I was looking forward to this one, but I think I must be missing something. I just keep getting a 'you are lost in the woods' message, or words to that effect. I did manage on one occasion to get a humorous little description about a dozen words long, but only after wandering seemingly at random around the woods for what seemed like an eternity but was probably only a few minutes. I'm afraid if i'm being a little hasty in giving this one a bad review then i'm more than happy for somebody else to point out what i'm doing wrong and give me a gentle shove in the right direction. But until that happens continuously stating that 'you are lost in the woods' at every turn(literally!) just doesn't cut it for me. I had initially thought that I really was simply missing something obvious, so tried 'help' and 'hints' and even 'about' in a vain attempt to find out where I was going wrong, but no, no luck since they aren't implemented.

I hope somebody tells me what an idiot i'm being in missing the obvious and points me in the right direction, because the single, short description I did get showed signs of promise.

Anyway, i'll give it two stars for the moment, but am hoping to increase that if and when i'm able.

Thanks for the link, but i'm afraid i'm still in the dark. All I can gleen from all this information is that it's some sort of parody. I just can't quite work out why it's such an outstanding parody. I've a horrible feeling you may just have to spell it out for me here... sorry! eek!
