  Post-comp version significantly improved, Thu 20th May 2021
By Denk - See all my reviews

This improved post-comp version is sufficiently polished, so you can concentrate on the puzzles without wondering if you have triggered a bug, which could leave the game unsolvable. Also, more interesting responses have been added.

Story: You are on a quest to save Princess Illumina and the game starts when you have reached the dungeon in a castle, where the princess is kept in a cell.

This short fantasy adventure has only a few puzzles but they are quite good. They are fair even though one is quite tricky. But if you carefully pay attention to ALL details, you will most likely succeed. I didn't, so I needed a few hints from the author.

This is traditional fantasy IF, which I like. Though short, the few puzzles range from good to excellent so I recommend this game a lot. It may be, that you need help with the final puzzle, but I am sure you will say "of course" after getting the right hint, just as it should be.

To sum up, if you don't mind short games, this one is quite entertaining and challenging.

  Disappointing, Tue 8th Mar 2022
By David Whyld - See all my reviews

The main issues with the game that I could see were the constant wrong word usage. You know how you're reading something and it throws you off balance when someone uses the door word? (Like here :) ) It happens frequently here. I know English isn't the author's first language so it's to be expected that issues like this would be found, but it's still disappointing just how many there are. Even more disappointing is the fact that the game boasts no less than four testers - did none of them spot the errors either? And this is a very small game besides; it's not like it has hundreds of locations to get lost in or pages of text to sift through.

I didn't manage to finish the game or even achieve much of anything, and as there's no walkthrough or hints available there was nothing much I could do except quit. After dying for the umpteenth time to the guards with their out-of-setting night vision goggles, I did just that.

There probably could be a nice enough game here but it definitely needs someone with a decent grasp of English to give it a good spruce up. As it stands, itís a long way from being ready.
