I really enjoy these kind of puzzle solving games kudos to you for trying something different. I'm a bit disappointed that most of the choices involved choosing which direction you wanted to go in instead of puzzle solving, but the puzzles that were there I really enjoyed. Now I've got to go back and replay the game a hundred times until I've got all the treasure ^_^

The story is too linear, the characters are really dull and it isnt much of an interactive gamebook, the point of a game book is to make it 50% interactive fun and 50% story ,this is more like 20 % interaction with minimal effects on storyline ,30% a dialogue report and a content of 50% storytelling with a plot so linear and boring that it has surpassed the dullness and boringness of a cardboard box or paint drying.
