Comments: What can I say? Great concept, like something out of a Woody Allen short story. The fantastic comic writing made me envious! Getting into the apartment nearly drove me crazy though.

Demonstrates a novel sense of humour, though I think it's unwise to have such a long, non-interactive introduction to a short game that is going to be as necessarily underimplemented (due to the three hour time limit) as this one. Some pretty cool ideas here, but I found the game difficult to get through just because it doesn't understand enough variations on commands. 'Roll beads' wasn't  understood but 'put beads' was??

Comments: Hilarious. Could have been a little easier to solve getting in the door.

SCORE: 7.66
Comments: Instead of timed delay, use the [more] command. Hilarious!
Enjoyed the humour. Personally hate passwords. Took a while to figure out how to get the beads on the dance floor.

This year, I've decided to associate a song by Rush with each game along with its score.

SCORE: 9 wackily subverted monster stereotypes out of 10.
Song: "Tom Sawyer"
Comments: -Long intro makes it somewhat tough to start up.
-Very funny.
-Incredible implementation for a Speed-IF. It was hard to find objects mentioned that weren't implemented.

Comments: Plot and settings were spectacular. I became Steve Van Helsing, brave, cle
ver, and in over my head. Puzzles were neat, but too linear (difficult?) for me. Hints are nice though, and did help a lot!
