Well, there's not much here in terms of difficulty to say the least.

There's a interesting context here, but this story really lacks in complexity that it would've certainly benefited from. I wouldn't of minded actually having to think things through more to reach a conclusion, because I found the actual answer to be a bit too obvious at the end.

More details and writing in general would also have benefited this story. With a game like this I feel that its important to at least flesh out things and give the story some more depth and meaning to the situation.

There's really not much here in the end of the day, and I must say that's a bit of a let down.

Still, there's potential in this, that I believe. Just don't be afraid to get descriptive and imaginative with your writing, and don't make things so simple. Complexity in a game like this is a good thing, as it makes it more exciting if there's actual challenge involved in succeeding.

This was okay, but I can't say that this was too memorable.

This storygame was way too easy for it to be enjoyable. I knew who the culprit was after gaining two items. This style of puzzle, while it was a pretty good idea, might have worked better if it was a bit more complex.

I also didn't like how the game didn't explain why the 'evidence' that you find should be proof of somebody being the kidnapper. You found footprints from footwear that matches certain suspects, but so what? It could easily have been somebody who didn't kidnap Mr Allistair.

You could have done with fleshing out setting, mood and characters more, and just adding more detail in general. It would have made this a nicer read.

And for crying out loud, please spell colonel right.

Would have liked to use items for more intense investigation.
