The atmosphere wavers between being comic and sinister, and is difficult to classify. At times it seems almost as though it is trying to be a children's game, what with having the plot revolve around a kidnapped cat, and supplying such fanciful images as talking platypii, and disembodied boots that patrol the town.

Depsite the lack of graphics and sound, this game still has the power to please, excite and stump players. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Wishbringer: The Magick Stone of Dreams is a classic Infocom game in the style of the Zork and Enchanter series. The game takes place in the same universe and the story makes a couple of passing references to those series. No prior knowledge of the Zork or Enchanter series is required or even helpful to succeed in this game. Wishbringer is considered by its fans as a short introduction to the genre of interactive fiction that is deal for beginners. While it may be a little too easy and short for the experienced gamers, the clever puzzles and classic Infocom sense of humor still make this game an entertaining title for all fans.
