Editorial Reviews

IF-Review
A Review of Stranded
For some reason, games which are marketed as "educational" always seem to be targeted precisely at a particular age level, and "education" always seems to imply "in math".

Stranded follows the model pretty closely, in the sense that it's easy to get started with (with lots of helpful tips on how to play IF scattered through the text, as seen in the room description above), has a bunch of brightly-colored pictures (illustrated by Igor Revyakin, who should be commended for striking just the right note with his drawings), and has little puzzles stuck in that don't feel quite natural ("This ceiling is in need of painting. It is covered in square tiles. The tiles make up a pattern like a checker board. Each tile measures one foot by one foot. Counting from east to west, there are ten tiles in a row. Counting from north to south, there are ten tiles in a row as well." -- and later on, of course, you have to figure out how much paint to buy).

SPAG
"Stranded" is a short cushy game either for young novice players or for somebody who feels nostalgic about innocent childhood. Hardcore IF players probably will find the game weak.
