This was inspired by the movie "Big" with Tom Hanks.

Games like this started my obsession with making my own games. It's purely about nostalgia. The struggle Josh Baskin had in the movie "Big" was not wanting to be a kid (frozen in childhood, unable to overcome his perceived obstacles). But all I can seem to think about now is how much I'd like to go back to my childhood and re-experience the best, most care-free time in my life.

"During the first scene I knew that the PC game [Josh Baskin] was playing [was] a metaphor for the events ... to come. The ice-melting puzzle is a metaphor for Josh being stuck in adolescence and how he wants to break free and become an adult. The Zoltar machine is his gateway into adulthood but is also a representation of childhood and innocence. In the end when Josh goes back to work on the puzzle and finds a way to melt the ice, he has learned that being a kid isn't so bad and the puzzle has been completed, therefore he can go back to being a child."

Pointless.

I always try to see the good side in these games as they take time and effort, but that felt pointless... Almost as if you'd made it just so you could use the song at the end.
It takes about 4 seconds to complete all in all, which on my shitty interwebz out in the country is a shorter time than it took to load.
Thats the main problem, if it was longer, even by a few more screens, or there were more endings or items to use and pick up then maybe this game would be playable.

Stab Him

The ironic text adventure game has already been done, and done much better, and funnier. There is nothing novel or insightful here, it's just simplistic and meaningless. There is barely a game here, so I can't offer much in the way of constructive criticism.

Hmm.

The concept is good, but the idea that you can beat the game by typing one thing seems like a waste to me. It would be a great game if it were a lot longer.
