The descriptions were gripping and the storyline interesting. I also liked that there were multiple endings. However, I was disappointed with the set-up of many of the objects. Particularly annoying thing for me were the hyperlinks for the lift buttons--for two of them, 'look at' was on the left and 'press' on the right, but for the wrong button they are reversed, so while I was quickly trying to 'look' at all of the buttons for clues, I accidentally clicked on the wrong hyperlink and died.
Besides these technical issues (I've listed some below) and a few grammar problems, I would have liked to have the game include more clues rather than rely on trial-and-error guesses.

A few other object issues: I can't read the notebook although it is "well-used"; I can't see the Post-it or stickies ("I can't see that"); for some reason I can't look at either box without instantly needing to enter a password; if I have unlocked a box and look at it again, I am still required to enter the password; if I take the Petri dish and try to use the swipe card on the control panel, I get an error ("Error running script: only one wait can be in progress at a time"), even after dropping the dish; the Ebola is described as a "petrie dish" but I can't see or drop it if I use that phrase--I need to call it "Ebola" for any command to work; if I open the control panel, a mysterious Code110110110 appears in my inventory but seems to serve no purpose; and if I have the swipe card and return to the box and re-enter the password, the card magically disappears from my inventory to appear in the box.

I thought this was an excellent take on the original King's Quest II game by Roberta Williams. The items work beautifully, I was impressed to see most of the characters, and the few alterations are worked in nicely. It was so fun to explore the world of Kolyma again! Please do King's Quest I next!

Review for A Hobbit Trek

I really liked this game--it is intuitive and often warns you if you are about to die. I enjoyed all the hobbit references too. It is a fairly quick, amusing game that is very well done.

This was so short, I didn't understand what was going on.

Review for The Crooked House
12 Jun 2013
A short, slightly creepy game. I finished it in the end, but I found some of the actions were not intuitive. I finally randomly tried to use objects on various people until something worked. I also ended up with a lot of objects that I never used.
