Review by David Welbourn

Not much to this game, is there? I finished it in eleven minutes and that includes being confused by the misleading description of the pot when it's still on the pillar. Bare minimal location descriptions (without even any mention of available directions to travel in) add to the dullness of this remarkably brief game.

Rating: 3.
