SPAG

A story of a little kid who sneaks into the video arcade after hours to play some games while the mean big boys are away. Cute but a bit pointless, if you ask me. Or not! The very first video machine I try. I find myself _inside_ a huge game of Tetris! This was a moment of realization for me, which is always nice.

>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction

In short, the game had me, and then -- via a short series of aggravating scenes and statements -- it lost me. I'm sure that won't be true for everybody. People who share the beliefs portrayed in [the problematic] scene will have a much easier time navigating it (though I imagine that even some of them will still be less than pleased with its primitive formulations), and some people who share my beliefs will be dispassionate enough about them that the scene won't bother them. It's not that the game is super-fantastic aside from that, but until it rubbed me the wrong way, it was a pleasant enough diversion. For me, though, even though I finished IMP, I didn't end up getting a lot of pleasure out of it.

Reworkings of several old arcade games into IF, tied by a plot, September 15, 2017

This game, similar to Sylenius Mysterium, has you entering an arcade at night and playing a variety of arcade games in IF form.

Some of the games work out really well (I like the way that Pong was presented). Others are just bizarre (what game corresponds to the politics scene?).

Overall, fun with a walkthrough.

A number of funny and pretty smooth mini-games tied by a loose narrative about a young arcade gamer. Geeky humor transpires throughout.
