Baf's Guide

Easy, generous game-play, a reasonably effective plot, and a nifty magic mechanic combine to make this game accessible and charming. The game offers interesting graphical enhancements to the standard features of interactive fiction, including images of all the NPCs and a set of buttons that simplify spell-casting.

Not all aspects of the work shine equally -- the prose has its rough moments, object descriptions tend to be little more than restatements of what you already saw in the room description, and some elements of the fantasy setting seem a bit tired. There is enough that's fresh to keep the game going, however, and it's short and entertaining enough not to wear out its welcome.
