I was quite enjoying the game until I reached an impasse, not knowing what to do next, and sadly, couldn't get any further into the game. (Reviewer: Phil Richmond)

Despite some initial turbulence, the game is a lot of fun when you get immersed in it. If you can tolerate the limited parser and subject matter, you'll find the game fairly enjoyable. (Reviewer: Eileen Mullin)
