Nice wordplay, February 11, 2014
by Simon Deimel (Germany)

Considering that it was a speedIF entry, this game is very well done.
The wordplays are not difficult to understand, and the prose is written in stanzas, making this a piece of poetry. The ending is heart-warming.

It is recommendable for beginners who want to see the basic concepts of IF and advanced players who like a short diversion.
