Another IF Comp review, following my format for this comp. There is a cut, then any spoiler-free comments I have, and then spoiler space, and then more detailed feedback that assumes the reader has tried the game.
But first, we have some obligatory filler to try to make sure that the RSS summary does not accidentally contain any review. Filler, filler, la la la…
Okay. Here we go.
Its/it’s errors and small grammar errors put me off early; so did the concept. A game about a generic apprentice wizard running generic quests in a generic lazy-medieval setting needs staggeringly good gameplay to keep me onboard. I played for fifteen minutes or so, realized that I wasn’t having fun and wasn’t likely to enjoy the rest of the game, and quit.
There might be something here for someone with different tastes (or someone who just hasn’t played so many of this sort of game already).
