ImagiDroids stands with The Magic Show as an ADRIFT game that surpassed my expectations this year. I thought the game was quite clever, and it contains one or two novel moments. Unfortunately, it's also very short, and some of it is cliched. (On the other hand, some people may actually enjoy the cliches; it depends on whether you view this as a successful sci-fi spoof or not.) Although this isn't the most elaborate game of the year, it's worth a play.

The opening sequence has you turning on a computer and playing a computer game written by ">ANDROID001". This fits into the larger scheme of the game, which unfortunately I can't describe here. In a bite-sized game like this, it's impossible to say much of anything without spoilers.

The game has a few bugs, but was generally well designed. I enjoyed the game for as long as it lasted. In fact, it's made me curious to play more games by Woodfish. It will be easy for me to satisfy that curiosity, since this game is only available as part of "The Woodfish Compendium," which includes six short games by Woodfish. Hopefully others will want to look into Woodfish's games too.
