A mid-length combinatorics/geometry game, February 15, 2016
In this game, you are taken to a secret government lab where you must destroy some spiders and a gun. The spiders are destroyed in conventional IF ways, but the guns require you to position mirrors, considering angle of incidence and so on, and must be destroyed in a certain order.

I played to an okay ending, getting 83 out of 100. I couldn't figure out what I did wrong; then I tried again, and got 100.

The writing is classic Schultz, with a kind of easy-going chatter with self-consciousness about intelligence.

The puzzle was fun; recommended for geometry fans.
