Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide

A vengeance story with a twist (in this case, the last word almost can be taken literally). Balances between three and four stars. The factors that finally turned the scale were several non-crucial bugs, the possibility to lock oneself out of victory without sufficient warning, and the inclusion of adult content without any indication either in the game itself or in the accompanying materials. Plus, it wasn't easy for me to identify myself with the protagonist.

A revenge murder story like Taken, November 17, 2017

This game is mid-length; it has you play as an assassin infiltrating a house to avenge their daughter's death.

I have to wonder if this is a troll game. It is over-the-top, and includes a random adult scene (in metaphor form), and involves toilets and superglue as weapons of death.

There were several bugs and the writing wasn't especially polished.
