Great humor.

Good puzzles and riddles. Not too hard and not too easy.

The game is not too long, nor is it too short.

It made me laugh aloud every 3 to 5 turns.

An enjoyable game, with an enjoyable story, from start to finish.

Good points - there are a lot of fun puns, I really like the humour. The puzzles are tricky without being too obscure.
Bad points - it's frustrating how many objects are referred to in scenery descriptions but then "aren't there" when you try and interact with them, especially once you get to the city. (eg.
Jack the Landlord is referred to as the barman but then when you try and talk to "the barman" the word isn't recognised.) Conversely there are a lot of items that you can interact with which you can't see immediately in the room description and you have to look at another object to find it, even though if you were in the room it would be readily apparent that the object was there because it isn't in a container.

Had the pleasure of beta testing this game during it's development. It's a fun, charming story filled with Pratchett-esque fantasy comedy, and with a nice mix of puzzles including riddles & item combination which will test you mentally. I'm excited to see further stories from NecroDeath in the future, so for the time being, definitely give this one a go!
