Summary

Not great, NOTHING to do with James Bond, but I have played worse.

The Good

A quick little adventure romp. Some of the dialogue made me chuckle. The Reality-On-The-Norm universe is pretty interesting.

The Bad

Really the only thing "wrong" with the game is some of the pathfinding. A couple of the locations I accidentally found by clicking in the right part of the screen. And traversing from screen to screen can be tough because the range for the "walk" icon is like... two pixels wide. So it can be a struggle just to move from screen to screen.

There are some typos and the plot is a little weak, but... I dunno. The creator is VERY harsh on himself in the commentary for this game. I think he's too hard on himself. I mean, it's not great, but it's not like... Superman 64 or something.

The Bottom Line

To be honest, I played this game because I thought it would have more to do with James Bond, or at least MI-6. Spoiler: It doesn't. But it did introduce me to the concept of the Reality-On-The-Norm universe, which sounds interesting and I will continue to explore.

I wouldn't go so far as to recommend it, but for a half-hour little adventure, you could do worse. But you could do way better too.
