Short, but runs on rails, July 17, 2012
by Karl Ove Hufthammer (Bergen, Norway)

You’re a secret agent, and this evening your job involves you assassinating Hitler, who’s travelled from the past in a time machine to crash the mayor’s New Year’s Eve party! This is a Speed-IF game, so it’s very short, but the writing is actually quite good, and I didn’t notice any spelling or grammar mistakes. However, the game has one major problem – it doesn’t really contain any puzzles. There are a couple of simple actions you need to do to finish the game, but the game does them for you automatically, leaving you (as the player) as a bystander. This make it much less engaging than it could and should have been.
