Nord and Bert Couldn't Make Head or Tail of It

Infocom

"Its biggest flaw is inconsistency of play from one scenario to another. The puzzles are fairly trivial, compared to standard adventure games, but the word play ranges from easy to difficult. I love puzzles but when success rests on recalling every cliche in the book there is little challenge and less interest. The element of fairness is gone: either you know it or you don't, with no hope of finding a logical solution. I give Infocom an A for originality [though]" Antic Magazine
