Crimson Detritus Reviews
Author: Mystery

Not bad 

Reasonably well written for a nonsense game and easy enough to figure out even without the accompanying walkthrough. 

Recommended if you're into incredibly short games that don't overtax your brain. 

4 out of 10

Good for Beginners 

While not horrible, Crimson Detritus is too simple and small to be considered anything more than a few minutes of fun. The writing and descriptions are well done, but there's not enough to see, and there's only a small amount of rooms. This would be an ideal game for beginners at text adventures, but it's a bit too easy for anyone else.

A Trifle 

Mystery is a good & helpful & knowledgeable person, but I have to say that there is not much to this, and what little there is isn't very interesting. Other Mystery games are much more worth your time.

Comments: Too short and not really enough of a game here to write a fuller review. On the whole it passes five minutes but little else. Might be an idea to expand it one day and add a few more things to do.
