You are Moonbrother. A young wolf, try to excel and maybe be the Alpha male in the end.

Player Comments

This was decent, if only a bit linear.

It felt like there was really only one correct sequence of doing things, but it was both fun and simple for the most part. It seems like the game aspects take priority over story elements, and I do think that a good balance of both always makes for entertaining reads. But I don't find this bad, because I found myself enjoying completing this game.

I only wish that there was more depth to the system in general. As of now this feels quite linear and lacking in much detail and story elements, but this does get the gaming elements right for the most part. Because the player must build themselves up before they're able to achieve and earn everything, the journey was short, but it was fun enough.

I must say that I look forward to seeing what you can accomplish with a deeper system in place.

I think the simplicity worked for this kind of story where you are focused on objectives and survival, as motivation for getting the 'win' option. However, I didn't understand the purpose of the human village when it inevitably leads to death. This story was enjoyable, and worth the five-ten minutes it takes for you to complete it.

Nice concept. Though this is short, the fact you can't repeat actions if you try something too early makes you want to play again. It's maybe best thought of as a puzzle rather than an interactive story. A little more narrative and more choices would go a long way, but I enjoyed what was there.

Well, this was pretty interesting with a good sense of progression. It's not very realistic how you literally just kill three enemies and then suddenly you're tough enough to challenge the alpha male. If you dive into the trash you're killed by something unknown. It would probably make more sense to mate with the alpha female AFTER you've beaten the alpha male, too.

It was a satisfying read, though. Possibly there might be another path where you get with the "normal" female but by that time my character was literally too powerful to try it. (Or maybe it was because he'd tried and failed before.)

I hate these wolf sims with a passion, but this is probably the least obnoxious one I've encountered on the site.

For such a tiny, linear game the rating seems a bit inflated however. I blame hordes of furry children + the fact that it's a very old game and site standards were just different back then.

I did sort of like that figuring out the sequence of events was a mostly logical little puzzle in itself, but was less impressed with the 'solution' boiling down to the only course of action possible. The writing is very, very sparse as well, and while for me that's a good thing, because I have zero interest in reading about wolves having fights or mating or whatever (or fighting bears??? I don't believe there's a situation where a single wolf could ever kill a bear...), as a matter of principle you can't have every scene in your story be 'you do a thing. you win!'

It's a nice story. I feel there should be more ways to win, but it's pretty nice.

I thought this was brilliant! I didn't do very well at first, but in the end I succeeded. This was great!
