Some material may be inappropriate for persons under age 16. If this were a movie, it would probably between PG-13 and R.

You will need the password from the end of the first "Tower" to play this game! (The one in invisible text between two brackets on the last page).  Don't worry; if you forgot it and can prove you beat the game by having a comment of over 100,000 score, then I will tell you the password.

What happened to Glaile post death?  Can't give away much because it can ruin the Tower I!  This will be the introduction to the land of Serennia.  Think about it like the Hobbit to the Lord of The Rings.

I found this game not quite as interactive as the prequel, but still incredibly fun in its own way. It was great to see G(l)aile again, for one. The time mechanic was also lent an actual sense of urgency to the story, as I found myself panicking as time began to run out despite the fact that this is a storygame, haha.

There were a few loose ends - such as one page that mentioned SCORE when it wasn't referenced anywhere else in the game - and the link to the encyclopedia didn't work, so I had to guess all the quiz questions.

All in all though, worth the time to play, and still a very entertaining and gripping adventure in G(l)aile's saga.

Excellent use of the land and interesting, creative premise. At the beginning, and throughout some of it, the writing and dialogue is really good with barely any typos or anything; I was impressed. In certain sections, though, it seems sloppy and not nearly as good, making it seem inconsistent. Also, I'm not sure there's enough time to do many, and certainly not all side quests, I think the timer should be modified. A cool effort, could be expanded and modified to be really great in V2.

Interesting. I got the second pass, but I'm not sure what it does. Used it to restart, but didn't notice a difference.

Intriguing game though. The concept behind it was cool. Just wish it was longer, and you got to explore a bit without being timed.

Cool. Didn't get to see score at the end. Hope I did it right. Any Serenia games still planned?
