The Challenge had three entrants, one of which was my own. I'm giving 4 stars overall, because I think "Good" describes the overall experience I had with this compilation better than "Average." I will briefly discuss my thoughts on all three, limiting myself to three sentence per review.

Mangiasaur, by DCBSupafly.
Winner, a game with one short, primary verb for the easily distracted [>EAT]. Reminiscent of E.V.O.: Search for Eden, the player is a dinosaur-like monster in a prehistoric world, eating everything in sight. Nom, nom, nom-- a yummy treat and a quick play, do try.

Suburban Prodigy, by MikeDesert.
2nd place game by up and coming author. Heavy uses of anti-mimetic writing and worn stereotypes. Inclusion of illustrations and music may ameliorate these for some.

Whitterscap's Key, by Duncan Bowsman.
3rd place game, not as funny as it wants to be. By hiding victory commentary in unpublished ALR, the game forces the player to have to "lose" arbitrarily, meaning the game commits the same errors it attempts to lampoon. Written as Speed-IF, and it shows.
