The Cat In The Tree Reviews

Review by David Whyld

Guess the verb brought this game to a crashing halt. I successfully managed to take the ladder and attempt to climb the tree, but what kind of phrasing was needed to actually give the milk to the cat baffled me. Even after looking in the Generator I couldn't figure it out. No simple "give *milk* to *cat" here. 

Oh no. Here we have advanced task structures at their most incomprehensible: 

"[get/grab/hold/offer]{the/at the/at}{mil/cup of milk/cup}{to/to the}[cat/pussy]". 

After attempting a dozen different variations and being unable to get even one to work, I just quit.
