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
Fast and intuitive UI. Layout is obviously designed to appeal to younger generation although I use fullscreen 'Jason' theme to save screen space. Download of new stories is easier than other interpreters too. Edit - dropped a star as cannot cope with some early classic Infocoms and also does not save in quetzal format so games in progress are less portable. Still best UI though.
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.
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?
Library directory options please Really nice app. Only thing keeping it from a higher rating is that I cannot designate the path for the game library. My device has very limited storage space and it would be extremely nice if I could store my game files on my external micro SD card instead of having store everything in the internal storage of the device. Edit: gave an extra star cause I got a new device. Still think adding games is a bit fidly and would still like library path options.
