FINALLY I cannot describe the joy I felt in finding this. I am in love with making and playing text based adventure games, and boy is this amazing. This is not for people who want a regular rpg game, but for those who like to read and use their imagination to solve puzzles and things, A MUST GET! I mean, there is no excuse if its free. Give me a good reason NOT to get it
Really great z interpreter!!! Easily the cleanest and most responsive I've seen, the smart interface takes a little of the tedium out of the command line only interface. Love it!! I only have one issue: When I use my wireless Logitech 920 keyboard over bluetooth, for some reason every time I hit enter, it issues 2 enter commands. As a result, the engine first interprets my command, and then an empty green bubble appears, to which the interpreter responds, "I beg your pardon?" If that little fix could be made, it would be wonderful! Great product!!
hopes for IF on touchscreen Save State dialogue is text entry with no dialog or previous entry recall. Could use text scaling and some other additional formatting and layout options. The borders trigger movement so on a small device this may affect your scrolling. Alternatively, it's about the best hope for now of playing IF on a touchscreen and seems to do a fair job of at least interpreting the compositions and making them a bit more accessible with its toolbar.
This is a wonderful app and a perfect platform for these old text-based games. I do have a question. I've been downloading many of the old infocom games and they work well, but some of the later ones have a .dat filename (like Stationfall or Lurking Horror) I stead of .z3 or .z5. Is there a way to play these as well?
5 stars, does exactly what it says and gives hours of fun. Small issue with a bug with some games where typing hint can lock the controls in the secondary mode (with the arrows and the check mark) making you unable to continue, but can be circumvented by saving the game before hand and reloading after you get your hint. All in all very satisfied and would definitely recommend.
Awesome layout I've seen only a few for pc, but this one has a amazing layout. Having more fun than ever with it. My only problem is that I didn't find too much games on website, maybe it's because the type is old and almost nobody create these types of games. Can I download games from other websites? What is the game format for this one?
