Baf's Guide

A look at how bizarre and disturbing the videogame of the same name would be if it were real. Very brief and linear.

A text game spoofing the original Lode Runner, September 15, 2017
by MathBrush
Related reviews: less than 15 minutes

This is essentially a joke game in the IF arcade pack spoofing Lode Runner.

It shows the logical result of assuming everything in the game is real, including the more unreasonable parts of the original game.

It's short, but I found it amusing.

Very Short Games by tggdan3
Games that can be completed in less than 30 mintues. Need not be one room (though that obviously helps). Hopefully, the games are fun as well.
