What an awesome game. This brought back all my memories of text-based adventure games, and really captured the spirit of those games. One person takes the role of the program / computer and waits for commands from the "player", which can be one or more people. The player makes simple commands, such as "open door" or "pick up _object_" and the program responds with simple statements such as "you have picked up _object_". The fun comes from the players trying to puzzle out both the correct commands to get things done, as well as work out what they are meant to be doing and "solve" the mystery of Action Castle. Each time a player gives a command that cannot be completed the program player must respond with a simple "You cannot do that", or possibly something more humorous, in the same way the original computer programs might. The program player is encouraged to misinterpret (or literally interpret) the commands and take advantage of any mis-speaking a player might do. This is a quick game to learn and play and my friends and I had a blast with it. I would recommend picking it up, and all the other games in the Parsley series.
