Back in the day these games were all we needed and there's much to be said for them that the shiniest new games are yet to achieve...
- Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
Possibly one of the greatest text adventures ever (in my humble opinion)
- Ran under DOS and then disappeared from view
- Is now available online in java and flash (hooray!)
- Zork is back, and released freely under an emulator...
Zork I, II and III are available here: http://www.infocom-if.org/downloads/downloads.html
This game was incredibly addictive and I have lost all trace of it.
Game play was a mix of sex, drigs and rock and roll and almost always ended up in a psychadelic screen with the rather terminal phrase Death: The Ultimate Trip
