SCORE : 5 

I was quite enjoying this game until I ran into some really poor programming with regard to the trunk. In the attic I found a trunk which I wasn't able to open. After hunting around for a while, I came across a key. "Ha-ha!" I cried. "This must be what opens the trunk!" In theory, yes. In practice, no. After running into several failure messages when trying to open the trunk, I cheated and looked in the Generator and found that the same command - "open trunk" - had been used for when the player tried to open the trunk with or without the key. The without message came first, therefore making it pretty much impossible for the trunk to be opened with the straightforward "open trunk" command. Fortunately the game understands other commands but that was a really bad oversight there.
