The plot is you get sucked into a portal and you make your way through the strange countryside. If you get something wrong and it says you lose, you can go back to the last question and choose a different answer

Player Comments

I get it's called "Portal World", but I don't see the purpose in it nor the changing settings. As mentioned in other comments, this storygame features the "dead-end if you choose wrong link" thing, which is forever annoying.

There is no purpose for the protagonist, no layer in the settings nor characters, no sensible plot, and therefore no entertainment unless you find getting your hand bitten off fun.

This storygame features the potent subject of portals, but does not deal with it well. It needs major improvement and revision.

1/8 for low branching, NON-complex plot, overrating of difficulty(Not really, but I wanted to bring it to your attention), and being very close to linearity (whole story except end has one non-dying path, and end has only six endings including bad, two per destination. Also there is no interaction between individual characters, which while not required would definitely improve the score for this particular story (e.g. diplomacy option for the pirates where you choose what to say? It would have to be much more complex than the rest of the story, no 'one wrong answer? you die, go back and choose the right one'. There's no fun(or pleasure, if you insist) in guess-and-check, and pleasure and helping people develop stories are the only reasons people bother to read any of the books here other than their own)

You could have at least made those turn around places into ending links.

If you go to emerald city you get the best ending

Very poor. Illogical, stupid, with tons of bad spelling/grammar.

I don't like how you just turn back and all your choices, just make alternet endings instead of forcing people to go back

I hated the YOU DIE bits, then it goes back to the previous page, that's annoying and really stupid.
