You have fallen into a board that looks like that of 'The House of Bob' and you must stop the stuffy person known as Bill and keep Da Warren silly forever more.

This game was one of the first games I've played when I decided to use ZZT and actually make games with it as opposed to only playing games with it. Its an okay game with only a couple of flaws.

The game contains a lot of plugs of the now defunct Da Warren BBS. This is one of the game's flaws. Though it sometimes plays jokes on how its annoying.

The graphics are pretty bad in today's standards but also pretty appalling in the standards back then as well. Some boards, particularly the ones at the start of the game, are hideous whilst others are just okay.

There's no revolutionary things in the Objects either. Just basic ZZT-OOP. Nothing terribly exciting which is a bit of a let down.

The gameplay is pretty much standard ZZT fare. Go around and shoot built-ins. What makes the game shine is the silly ideas presented within the game. Some of them are childish and others are just plain silly as the game self-describes it.

As its just average, this game only scores 5. Its a good game to play once but you might not come back and play it over and over.

For those wondering, this is whats left of Da Warren http://www.crummy.com/warren/
