Very Very Short, November 24, 2010
by tggdan3 (Michigan)

This is a short game with one puzzle: You want to walk your dog, but a tree is in your way.

The game can be solved in one move, and that move is probably the very move you would make in real life, so it's hard to call this a puzzle, any more so than encountering a closed, unlocked door is a puzzle, but this is what you have.

The objects are implemented, and there are a few things you can try that don't work, which is nice. This is definately a minimalist game, but it at least what it does, it does well.

The greatest blessing to this game is Parchment- the ability to play it online, since the effort of downloading it and downloading an interpreter would take longer than playing the game. With online capability, this is one of many short and sweet games that you can have fun playing in a few minutes.

Short, As In Winnable in One Turn , March 7, 2010
by AmberShards (The Gothic South)

A Walk in the Park is not only a short game, it's a one-turn game, which makes it positively microscopic. Not only that, but winning is trivially easy. The replay value consists solely of finding other ways to win, which isn't as satisfying as failing to win multiple times and then finally succeeding.

At any rate, the writing style is a silly kind of easy-going pop-culture slice-of-life humor. There are no outright bugs, but then again, the game doesn't promise a whole lot, either. Only a few objects are described and default responses rule the day. That there are no points makes me wonder if the game is finished -- did the author really mean for you to win with zero out of zero points?

At least "A Walk..." isn't annoying. If you need something to do for five minutes, there are definitely worse ways to spend your time.
