Overview: This is a fan fiction of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). In this game, you play a new wrestler who, on his first day on the job, is railroaded into a grudge match against WWE CEO Vince McMahon.

What works: A. Bomire comes up with a masterpiece of TADS programming in this awesome recreation of a WWE wrestling match. If this game doesn’t win first place in the Technical category I might have to give up on this community. I loved the way the wrestling match ran, with its intuitive command structure and brilliant WWE commentary ("He's making a move to the top rope, King, hoping to drop onto Vince McMahon!"
"I don't think Vince is going to let him get away with that!"
"No he is not, King, as Vince catches Torture’s leg and SLAMS him to the canvas!")
instead of “You make a move to climb to the top rope…” I’m not a WWE follower, but for this game it doesn’t matter. There’s more than enough background information provided in the game (and also a detailed description of all the available wrestling moves) that I felt like I could relate to the characters’ motivations and personalities.

What doesn’t: I can’t say that anything in this game really doesn’t work, but there’s one thing I must pick on – and you’ll have to understand that my pick is really not as severe a problem as I make it sound. That issue is that the sex in the game is too… well, too A. Bomire. With each new game, A. Bomire invents some new TADS wizardry (car chases! free-fall pursuit! WWE wrestling!), but his sex scenes haven’t expanded in complexity to keep up. Not to say this sex scene isn’t very hot, but after the awesomeness of the wrestling scene, the implementation of the sex is a bit ordinary. If there’s one author I’d hope to expand the boundaries of the interactive part of AIF sex, it’s this one.
