This is a cute little interesting work. I can see how the vocabulary words are worked into the story, and their purpose is quite obviously clear. I also like how the words are used in sentences and then the reader is the one who has to attempt to determine their meaning by selecting an option. And yes, the pictures do add a little to the story. I guess since this is a quiz in edutainment that it makes sense to have each wrong answer immediately end the “story.”

I do wish there were a few other answers to select from in each case. It would have been nice to have other answers that were close to the right answer to really see if the reader knew the vocabulary words. The way it is currently written, it seems very easy to select the correct answer because in many cases the other options don’t make a lot of sense. I also like that when you do select a wrong answer, the story tells you what you did wrong.

It was quite short, but it certainly appears to have served its purpose. It is a nice little vocabulary tester. Maybe we should do one of these for grammar and require all potential authors pass the quiz to be able to write on this site…

Hmm, this wasn't bad at all.

I liked that this quiz was given a narrative in pursuing a thief, it certainly made this much more exciting and immersive in that aspect instead of simply throwing out questions to be answered. So as something that's both educating and intriguing, this storygame did well enough in that aspect.

Though I'm not exactly sure as to which audience this is targeting, because I found this to be quite simple and the words themselves were words that weren't difficult, even less so with the hints that is given to the reader. I think that this storygame is probably a decent challenge for children, but this does end rather quickly.

I feel that this story would've benefited from having more choices in general, as the length for this storygame is rather short. But I do like the effort that was placed into making this a more interactive experience from the usual quiz, so bravo on that front.

A neat little story. Nice writing and use of pictures. As interactive fiction I feel this should be more fleshed out so that there are multiple branches including their own plotline instead of one choice that leads to a Try Again" link and the other continuing the story until it ends.

Too short, but the potential is there. This could have been an interesting game if more thought out.

It was okay. Using rare/longer/misused words might make the story even more interesting. Maybe longer, too. :). Cute little story.

This was nice. You have turned something that would've been totally boring into something fun!
