So I woke up... can't look at anything, can't go in directions, I don't even know what's around my person. I gave up.

Very nice game but a bit confusing to finish. I couldn't do it without this comments.
It was hard to use the right verbs soumetimes, e.g. to open the lock to free the princess!
Also it was very confusing to understand what to do in the well - I had no idea that I was sitting in the water and I needed some weight to go down. Nothing in the text says that.
But anyway with some hints from the comments I was able to finish that.
Thanks for fun!

I really enjoyed the game! The puzzles were straightforward and could be solved after putting some thought to them(except perhaps, finding the rugbug). I found the game to be of a good length, neither too long nor too short. I will definitely check out more of Peter Edwards' games!

This was one of my first text adventures, so I knew, coming into this, that I would have a hard time. But I was pleased to see that there weren't many moments that I found "unfair." The descriptions had a nice way of subtly making sure the player is aware of the important pieces of scenery in the rooms so that the player can figure out for themselves where they need to go to get an item. The game author was also very nice and helpful.
My favorite puzzle was the wooden door -- this is the kind of puzzle that you can solve for yourself without needing anything other than your own creativity.
