Puzzle

There are three types of people in this world;

Those that make things happen,

Those that watch things happen,

And those that ask - 'what happened?'.

***

The day starts badly: Late for work, you rush out the door forgetting your wallet and Smartphone.

It gets worse: Someone robs a STAPLES office supply store and you end up with the loot! - Someone else plants a bomb at a Starbucks and you’re holding the detonator!

How the day ends… is up to you.

Race against time or run for cover - the choice is yours - as you encounter COUNTDOWN TIMERS and PUZZLES along the way. 'Make Things Happen' and finish with the highest SCORE finding the Easter Eggs and hidden bonuses along the way. Do nothing and you will find the 'Watch Things Happen' ending or you might stubble upon the hidden ending that will leave you asking 'What Happened?'. Still... whatever you decide to do... don't forget... you're one click away from a BOOM!

 Answer The Call (episode1)

“Answer The Call” is a new and complete CYS game, by magcos and SindriV and will be coming soon on X-Box, PS3 and Nintendo Wii, sponsored by Jeremy Irons and...Yoda.

This is an excellent story. Clearly it is one of the older stories on the site, but this story really is a lot of fun. There are lots of options and choices, and with the addition of items, the possible combinations of things happening is really quite large. Since some actions appear based on having or not having items, you can’t really tell all the options without playing a very large number of times – and the story is entertaining enough that that’s what you want to do anyway!

This story is also a lot of fun because the choices you make earlier in the game have effects later in the game. The story really allows you to take all sorts of direction and you really feel like every choice you make will have a strong effect on the story—you really feel like you are directing the story here at all times.

The story is well-written and with the pacing and events that are going on, you really feel rushed to make your choices and choose options that will affect the story right away. There are times when you have to stop and think about the right choice because you know if you make the wrong choice, the story will get worse for those around you. This is a great story and a good example of doing a lot of different things with variables and items on this site as well.

I don't like the "it was only a dream" trope, it's lazy.

I think this had a great plot, proper grammar use and everything spelled correctly. You could use upper-cases on your links, but otherwise it was really good. 6/8

Oh wow, so in this game you have to DROP the RIGHT chip instead of USE the right chip to activate the signal jam! =D

Eh.... so the bomb was the nightmare? Or did I somehow screwed up? Was the signal jammed or the bomb went off anyways?
