  Nice idea... shame about everything else, Tue 27th Sep 2011
By David Whyld - See all my reviews

Hmmm... a game where you play Tic Tac Toe to decide the fate of the world. Kind of amusing for five minutes, and the odd bit of comedy thrown in for good effect, but pretty soon I found myself thinking "hang on, this is an actual game of tic tac toe here and not just the author picking that name for a really cool game which doesn't have you playing tic tac toe at all" and before long my interest was sinking through the floor. Technically the game is a mess what with the location description being repeated every time you make a move and the description unhelpfully informing you of your options each time, even though "play game" only works the first time.

And c'mon, Rob Zombie, if you can't see that letting me start means I can't lose (only draw), you really need a good smack.

  Play this one on paper, instead, Mon 19th Sep 2011
By Duncan_B - See all my reviews

A very easy game of tic tac toe given an epic, if entirely unexplained, frame story.

There's a comedy of scale and blundering going on here, but when it comes down to it, the entertainment limit of this game is already set at however much the player enjoys winning a game of tic tac toe.

Add to this that the screen doesn't clear between moves, but scrolls, and that there are proofreading errors in even a game of this size and... well, unfortunately, it can't add up to much.

Paraphrasing the words of Apu from the Simpsons "These 200,000 precisely-ordered punch cards comprise the world's very first tic-tac-toe program. Only the top human players could beat it!" If you throw the game it can be lost, but if you play well it isn't too hard to beat. A bug though is that if you beat it in the last move the game is considered a draw.

Well that was easy. Not sure the relevance of the zombies tho. Good game to show the flexibility of ADRIFT tho.
