Editorial Reviews

You alternately play the parts of Desmond and Gertrude by typing "SWAP" (that took me a while to work out because it is not in the instructions), with the ultimate aim of getting them both to a secret cave from where they can elope together. [...] Although quite short, Desmond and Gertrude was one of my favourites - the puzzles were challenging without being too hard, and I enjoyed the humour of the cleverly written text. Watch out for the ocean of red herrings though!
