About the Story

[Adrift 4 game - please do not play with Adrift 5 as the compatibilty with Adrift 4 games is low]

They said there was no way to get inside the fortress. They said a man would have to have a death wish to even try. They said it was less than a one in a million chance that someone could get inside, rescue the princess and kill the warlord who controlled the fortress. Then they added the anti-aircraft guns. The odds became even worse.

They said getting inside the mission to rescue the kidnapped princess, assassinate the warlord, blow up the fortress and get out in one piece was impossible.

Of course, they never reckoned with The Bulldog…

A well-developed Adrift rescue game with brain-or-brawn solutions, February 3, 2016

This game by David Whyld has 52 rooms, 5 npcs, and a ton of puzzles. These puzzles were hard and confusing to me, except for one thing: you can skip most of them. You are assigned a etc number of hit points, and each time you reach an enemy guard or a cliff, you can just rush through and get hurt, or be clever.

Even the real solutions usually have multiple options. However, I ended up being frustrated a lot. One thing to know is that if you know a password, you just type the pazsword, not SAY or anything like that.

You are a commando type guy rescuing a princess from a Nazi-style fortress. There are some intriguing locations.

Overall, this is off the beaten path of IF, but I didn't regret playing.

There is so much IF made with ADRIFT out there. Like with any platform a certain percentage of them are just plain...not good, but there are some really fun games out there too that the community is historically terrible about...
