Contains content that may not be suitable for persons under age 13. If this were a movie, it would probably be PG.

A humorous adventure. You play as yourself, an adventurer... well, let's be honest, you're a thief. You've heard a witch named Rowena has gathered treasures which are scattered throughout the tower she calls home.

You are free to backtrack as much as you like within the tower and the immediate area. Indeed, backtracking will be necessary to find all the treasures. You are free to return to the beginning and leave whenever you wish. The more treasures you find, the more you'll impress us, so of course you'll want to find all 17.

Certain risky decisions will result in your demise. You'll always be given a warning that you are doing something risky, so that you may change your mind. However, certain risky decisions have beneficial results. It's up to you whether to proceed or not.

Good luck with the treasure hunting!

It was fun, but relied a bit too much on guessing.

Good hidden treasure search. Only found 16 of the treasures but could only get 15 of them, since the I could not get the sword out of the suit of armor's hands! Definitely worth playing and I congratulate you on your creation!

I saved and I got stuck on the page that mean incorrect use of the silver goblet, so I had to drop the whole game and start over with only 2 items left to find! Real bummer, but when I did play, the game was funny, clever, and enjoyable.

loved it! had to look in previous comments to find the last treasure but this game was exactly what i was in the mood for! simple text, the perfect amount of humor, and a little bit challenging but not frustratingly so :)
knew there was something suspicious about the black cat in the beginning, esp. cause we couldn't interact with it all at that time lol

I enjoyed the cheeky humor, and collecting things is always a fun time

I loved the story and didn't find any spelling mistakes. I got all of the treasures too! This was a very well done story and I hope it gets featured.

5/8 I would rate it higher but it was a pain in the neck to gather all the treasures.

This is my favorite game on this site. I finally figured out how to get the dragon bone necklace. I hope you make more games like this.

This game is nice and challenging. The only thing I'd take out is the guess-and-check factor of the windows. I'd maybe have some way to change the prince from a frog, and maybe have in Rowena's diary that she hates it when people lie to her? Either way, I love the puns and sarcasm of the narrator and the way the main character talks to the narrator. It's funny with just the right amount of difficulty. I died twice and retried, but I eventually found all 13. I like how most of them are pretty easy to find, but some are counter-intuitive, like the Golden Ball and the Bar of Roentgenium. Great game!
