Oops. Shows what happens when I don't fully proof-read a review for a change. Ok, am going to fix these.

Edit: Fixed those, and a few others (mainly sentences starting with but), but didn't add that extra s. "The graphics come" is correct.

It is nice that the auther has made 2 different versions, so that everyone can enjoy this game.

Should that not be author ?

Nice review Frodo :blink:

Summery
Very fun, original (I think), addictive, sleek, nice looking freeware game that is only a 317kb download.

With the Abandonia Grammar Squad inactive until Raffles resurfaces, I've got to get my nitpicking fix elsewhere, so...

All of the following are from the Frederik Pohl's Gateway review:

Quote

In the year 2077 hummankind discovers a stash

Quote

which basically makes it ddifferent from most other text adventures in two ways

Quote

Wether you want to type or click your way through the game is up to you

Quote

but the graphics really nothing more than images of the location you're currantly at
Also in that last one, something ("are," perhaps) seems to be missing after the word "graphics."

Quote

while the optimists will say that the they're actually quite impressive

Quote

sound tracks that make you want to reach volume knob
I'm thinking there should be a "for the" in there somewhere.

Quote

one thing that makes it stand out as classic among adventure games; it's puzzles.
No apostrophe is necessary in the possessive "its."  Also, that semicolon should be a full-on colon.

Quote

You have to pay close attention, though, you never know what bit of information could prove usefull later on.
Also, I think there should be a "since" or an "as" or even a "because" before "you never know."
Today is a good day for pie.

I'm awfully sorry, FPJ, but to tell you the truth, I wasn't planning to resurface on AB, actually.:bleh: Being active on both forums just eats up too much of my time, and for personal reasons I decided for AR. I feel terrible for letting down the grammar squad, but it's quite impossible for me to stay - sorry.

About the review: well, it's still got far less mistakes than the NetHack review on AB. :D
