"You are trapped in a locked room. Can you unravel the secret of the strange mirror and escape?"

Mirror Mirror is a mini-adventure that was designed and written for this year's annual Sinclair community crap game competition; the Comp.Sys.Sinclair Crap Game Competition 2020.

Mirror Mirror has got a few interesting puzzles, and it runs smoothly as it is powered by the PAW... so why is it a 'crap game'? Well, the central mechanic is... slightly annoying. It's definitely one of those 'just because you can, doesn't mean that you should' ideas.

I hope you get some enjoyment from it, along with the frustration. It was an interesting programming challenge and demonstrates some of the ways that Gilsoft's PAWs is so flexible.

If you get really stuck then there is a way to cheat. Or rather, make things slightly less irritating.
