Summary

A good IF/RPG hybrid, though not as much of a "Zork" experience as the trilogy.

The Good

Random layout of rooms and objects each time the game starts up -- so no game is ever quite the same. I also liked the character design feature, since some puzzles are easier to solve with certain stats. Also has a great storyline that ties in quite well with the printed manual (worth a read!).

The Bad

Very easy to get to an un-winable state. Save early, save often.

The Bottom Line

The next step up from the traditional "Zork" experience. For a more traditional approach to IF, stick with the earlier Infocom titles. However, it is fun and does have lots of customizable features (map, colors, display modification, etc...). A great game overall.
