Is this the most elaborate time-waster ever conceived? After about fifteen minutes of playing it myself, I'm prepared to say, um, yes. I like my mindless entertainment to be, well, mindless. If I wanted a narrative structure to my video games, I would ditch the video games and read a book instead. Which is what I do. I also play Minesweeper and Solitaire. Add Tetris, and you have the perfect video game trifecta.
