This was a nice read and a breeze. Almost no "cruel" situations so get out there and get your Pirate Adventure on! Gonna need more Rum.

Very compact, nice, clean design. Ideal for beginners, as puzzles are accessible and logical but not obvious. Immensely popular in the days of the nascent domestic micro scene, and with good reason.

It's hard to put a finger on, put the gameplay is really good once you get the hang of the two-word parser. Recommended.
