Game #1201
Twilight's Ransom  
Interactive Fiction   Conventional

Rating: 7.5 (2 votes)

Paragon Software, maker of the Twilight series of strategy games, takes a diversion in this surprisingly well-written IF set in the Twilight universe. Suddenly discovering that your girlfriend has been kidnapped, you must deal with the kidnappers who have more sinister plans, rescue your girlfriend and-- of course-- save the world as we know it.

Although the game's parser is not up to par with Infocom's, interesting gadget-oriented puzzles and well-written gameworld more than make up for the deficiency. There are also enough plot twists along the way to keep mystery fans happy. All in all, a commendable and refreshing effort at fleshing out the fictional guns-and-bullets-littered landscape of Twilight 2000.
