It is a fantastic idea to promote a book. The introduction would be more attractive if it were interactive game tutorial rather than plain words. The music is a bit distracting. The brevity is enjoyable.

The game felt way too coaxed. Not enough options to really try anything. It's all black and white. Also, very short and you don't get the satisfaction of aeeing him caught or anything. It ended very abruptly in a way that made me thing i hit something wrong. I'm not sure if there are more missions as the game only said play again or exit.

This isn't really a game. It's more like a 5 minute gimmick that is trying to sell a paperback book. The idea is pretty neat, and it's a clever marketing concept, but that's all it is. It's basically a conversation that lasts a couple of minutes and then the game is over.
