Pretty good.

This was definitely something that was more game oriented, but the actual game aspects weren't bad, and the goal and premise are simple enough to tie into everything. There's really not much flaws to be found here unless I point out how my fingers did get a bit tired with all of the clicking that this game makes you do, but besides that nitpick of mine it wasn't bad at all.

I think this game did well in showcasing that simplicity isn't something that's always bad, because while this game is simple, it does a good enough job on being fun.

In short, this is a game that I wouldn't mind returning to play on more than one occasion. This was a fun little time waster and not something I would have issue with recommending for others to play.

Good work! :)

Hey everyone, I'm the person who told mnelssx about the glitche where you can't leave a comment and rating so you're welcome! Alright, I believe this is an amazing story. No grammar mistakes is a huge plus because I'm a grammar Nazi. Although it was short it doesn't bring down the quality of the story.

It is a game of luck and I bet some of the more experienced couldn't even pull of the game in the story. The game is basically you bet some or all of your starting gold and try to get enough money (400 gold) to ride on the train back home. If you can't get this money you will try to sneak onto the train, but the gaurds catch you and throw you in jail.

I really think this is good, but it needs more games. My final verdict for Long Way Home is a 6/8.

Glad you got the issue with leaving comments sorted out. I don't understand scripts or variables or whatever at ALL so I'm always super impressed when people can pull this kind of thing off with the editor, and I played quite a bit last night because it's a fun little game in its own right.

One bug I did notice was that if you wind up at a draw (or maybe just if you wind up at a draw with the last of your money tied up in the game) you don't get a link to continue or end the game or anything, you're just stuck there.

And I sort of felt that after the huge page of text you get when you lose (5 years in prison for trying to sneak onto a train without a ticket? Hmm, harsh but fair...) the actual winning screen was a little underwhelming.

This game was time consuming to win the card game. It would be good to add some different games to choose from. Also when I won the game it said I was rotting in a cell somewhere
