Byzantine Perspective Review

Yeah, okay.  That was cool.

This game at first seems buggy as hell — assuming you’re in my personal hell, with all the bugs — but in fact once you figure it out, it all makes sense and you can get things done.

For my part, the hints weren’t enough — I had to resort to the walkthrough.  Then, once I figured out what was going on, the game solved very quickly — really too quickly.  My total play-time was a little under a half an hour.

Note to the author — it’s not clear to me how I would have figured this out on my own.  And really the only way the primary riddle is clued is concealed by the riddle itself.

Overall, a nice fun game.  — IN RETROSPECT!  During the game, I was frustrated as hell.

Note to players — trust this game.  You’ll start off stuck and clueless.  Rather than resort to the hints and the walkthrough, try doing a lot of different random things.  It all makes sense.

Predicted score: 7.  It’d score higher if it weren’t as short.
