This small game for PunyJam 2 is well written and fun, with a good variation in puzzles. Good descriptions and all I tried had reasonable responses. All in all I enjoyed, but there are two small things that I think could be improved if the author wants to release another version based on feedback. The game lacks scoring and other feedback to judge if you (as the player) is making progress, so I was surprised how quickly it ended. And second, I think that one of the problems is too tightly paced. You must do things in an exact sequence with no time for looking around or examining things. There is no way that someone can finish the game without save/restore or multiple undo. It would be better to be more forgiving there.
The conclusion of the game is a fun crunchy arithmetic logic puzzle. The puzzles leading up to it are not as fun.
There's an annoying, very tightly timed puzzle where you have to avoid a sentry who arrives at a predictable time, requiring you to UNDO a bunch to avoid him.
Inside that room, there's a "guess the verb" puzzle using a non-standard verb. (Spoiler - click to show)You have to "spin the painting" even though it says you can't "push the painting." "It can't be pushed, since a nail is holding it to the wall." I thought this was unfair.
And in the puzzle with the host, if you guess the right thing to do, he delivers a line of dialog, but the game gives no indication that you've solved the puzzle. (Spoiler - click to show)When you "hit the host," he complains about it, but it turns out that once you hit him, he's unable to stop you from opening the door. The game doesn't make that clear enough; I had to read the source to solve this puzzle.
The logic puzzle at the end was fun, though!

You have come to the top of the Eiffel Tower to prevent a catastrophe. Nostradamus's writings have told you that unless you cut an onion with a ceremonial knife before 10 this morning somewhere up here, the world is doomed.
