CYOs are not fun. Also at one point I ended up in an endless loop of choices. 1.

Great game, i think the title clinched it :) no problems with the porgramin eiher as far as i could tell. 7.

As expected, this was nicely implimented with few problems or issues. I haven't played much of David's back catalogue, but I was able to pick up the jokes. It all worked and was written well, but it didn't have much of a spark for me - there weren't the hooks and twists and innovations that some of the other games had. 6.

Pretty good. I died, but I find it interesting that there is more than one ending in a 3 hour game. Also, I didn't come across any real bugs as far as game play is concerned, which is nice. It was a bit haphazard, with little direction, but humorous. I'm not a huge fan of the CYOA format, but I can still appreciate its quality :-) 7.

A simple idea, well-written, and compelling enough, but complete with parody-esque humour that is embarassing rather than funny such as character name 'Lord Sinister' and the game name 'Bottom Burps IV'. In fact, when faced with the character of Bob writing text adventures, a bug appears that results in you not being able to continue in a way that doesn't lead you to your death. In fact, is there anything that doesn't lead you to your death? I had a look in generator, but rather cryptically found no solutions that could be winning. If this is intentional, it is irritating rather than original as an unconventional ending as such could only work in a game that is entirely of the same nature without appearing clumsy. 4.
