This game plays as a text adventure but has elements of tactical simulation, with us in the role of a field commander. Four different trooper groups and officers that can be deployed anywhere, armed, and issued orders, plus air support, dozens of weapons, and a complicated mission with puzzles that depend on precise timing, NPC positioning, and sequencing of actions. The scenario is atmospheric and original, probably the closest to a tactical wargame in text adventure form, but the execution is poor: the Quill is too limited for this game, making for very difficult flow, bugs in the logic, and guess-the-verb situations. Commendable for ambition, but the design is too player-hostile to be enjoyable. Only recommended for hardcore experts with tactical play experience.
