This was pretty interesting.

I liked some of the pictures that were in this, they certainly helped in providing some form of visual entertainment in this story. I do think that this would've been more enjoyable if the writing was expanded on, because this story was quite short and it really felt like there was so much missed potential in this. More details and actions in general would only have had a positive effect on this story.

It would've been nice if the items had more of a overall purpose in this storygame, but their inclusion feels somewhat uninspired at the end. For a game about wildlife there didn't seem to be much in terms of interaction with the animals in this storygame. Some more adventure in general would've made things more interesting and immersive in the long run, it is always good to flesh out a storygame like this.

Overall, this was an okay storygame, but it feels like there's something missing to truly make it a worthwhile experience.

I liked this story. Well written and informative. Only one item seemed to do anything, unfortunately. Still, I learned something I didn't know, which is great! Excellent job.

Meh, I mean it wasn't terrible, but it seems kind of pointless to have an item related game where you only actually need to use one of the items.

It needs more pages, and a better explanation than just only one sentence.

Other than that, I liked it a lot. It was very interesting and intriguing, and all it needs is probably more pages.

It was an entertaining little game, but a little short. I liked the surprise that you had for the reader at the end, which I thought was clever.

Since I am familiar with Java and Indonesia, I know surprisingly a lot about rhinos. The facts were great, but only the fruits seemed to do something (besides the fact that the rhino book had facts). Anyway, great job on such a small story!

I'm sorry. The fact that "I am cat food. Meh." is a button you can click makes this worth a high rating.
