Attention span: 8/10 Good.
Controls: 4/10 Entering text on TI-89 is annoying.
Implementation: 9/10 Quick and simple.
Overall: 7/10 Only bad thing is the controls.

Ah, the classics. These are all text adventures put onto the TI-89; games where you have to think instead of react.

The games are certainly entertaining, and if you get stuck, the author has even included hint guides for each one. Descriptions of each area are vivid, and will certainly stick in your mind longer than any more graphical game will.

The only thing that detracts from this classic gaming experience is entering text. You have to type everything in- which is made awkward by the keyboard layout, Other than that, this is a nice little collection to have. When is the editor coming out, though?
