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!!
I've tried a lot of z interpreters, and this is my favorite because: * It's well laid out, and text is easy to read (not miniscule unicode) * Useful shortcut buttons (examine, take, open, etc) * Ability to click on a word in the story and include that in your command. The only thing that could make it better would be a user-defined library location, rather than the "download" folder only. It's a lovely interface, though, thank you for the app.
Great! A very good version. Tested so far with Zork and Hitchhiker's Guide. Interface is nice to use, even on a small screen due to the "click existing words". Two comments: save before changing focus! Sometimes your progress will be lost... Also, using the back button to remove keyboard to read the game text; if you double click you'll be back at the z file selection and will loose progress. Saving and restoring works via the menu.
Great app, really easy to import adventures and great usability. Even ability to modify the shortcuts, awesome! One request: Would you maybe consider adding white text, white borders/symbols and black background as a theme? It would be great, best setting for games like anchorhead imo! Thanks!
Better than the other mobile interpreters I've used so far ... I do like the "chat" interface. However, double-echoing the Enter key when using a keyboard is annoying. Also, .z6 games aren't supported, and keyboard input is sometimes not accepted when it needs to be, making many of the "abuse" games unplayable. I also don't like the save/restore interface. With all that said though, at least I could play through Anchorhead with no glaring bugs (like items disappearing, and occasional descriptions of the wrong room).
Fun!! I was so happy to get this! Used to play interactive fiction all the time actually. Glad to have it back. I wish it didn't erase progress if you move away from the app. I forget to save and autosave isn't great. Small bug though....still love it!
