Stranded 2

Stranded 2

The absolute worst game I have ever played. Complete horse sh*t.

I grew up on text based games so real excited about this but wouldn’t recommend to my enemies.

For $3 I’ll keep just in case it is ever actually playable.

Not just a text adventure. There’s art, sound and also has an advanced parser as you can see from the trailer. The puzzles are fun and challenging. Plus, as a bonus, you also get Zenobi Software’s Stranded 1 along with it (playable in the accompanied Spectrum emulator).

I do recommend reading the manual, even if you have played many text adventures before this one. It has tips and new features which you really don’t want to miss out on.

I just can’t leave a positive review.

The feeling is that 90% of the questions are about Mario! Give me a break. A TON of other classic games were just left out to make way for the same game over and over and over again, the same problem applies to the MIni Words: Top Movies, other game from the same developers that has the same movies appearing over and over again, it’s just annoying has hell.

My downvote isn’t just because of this, although a tiny game there are still mispelling errors and the puzzle itself has terrible controls - making a path it’s a real pain! Nothing like LYNE, LYNE is so much better in every way.

This has easily been the best experience I’ve had playing a game

I can’t recommend it enough

It’s really short, first run will probably be like maybe 6 hours

And after that, you can easily finish it in 3

Go into this game as blind as you can

It’s much more than a text adventure game

Comet 64

Comet 64

I’ve been playing Comet 64 since the closed beta and this game was already wonderful!

It looks just like I have dreamed for a long time, because I’m not a big fan of visual programming. In my opinion visual programming is divorced from reality, and in Comet 64 I finally have to write code by hands, which adds immersivity.

In visual programming I mean games like Human Resource Machine , 7 Billion Humans and some others.

Alright, high-level: if you’re here, you probably know about Zachtronics and Tomorrow Corporation’s games in the programming genre. This game is good. If you like those, you’ll like this.

The system constraints are novel and challenging.

The puzzles are a good escalation of difficulty and concepts.

The vibe is 100% in line with TIS-100 and MOLEK-SYNTEZ with the retro 80s graphics, including the option to customize the colors to match your favorite system from yesteryear.

The editting UI needs some love though. This can easily be fixed in a couple of patches, but currently it’s struggling compared to the polish I’ve gotten spoiled with from the more recent Zachtronics titles.
