If you’re interested in old text adventure games, then I’ve got some good news for you. Did you know that you can play such games Online using your Internet browser? There’s a website called Play Infocom Adventures Online that has plenty of classics available for playing.
The following games are hosted on the site:
Zork I: The Great Underground Empire
Zork II: The Wizard of Frobozz
Zork III: The Dungeon Master
Zork: The Undiscovered Underground
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Leather Goddesses of Phobos
The Lurking Horror
To be honest, I’m not very familiar with text adventures, but I’ve been getting a bit more interested in them lately. This is partly because I love reading science-fiction and fantasy novels. Playing a text adventure game is a bit similar to reading, but with the additional option to interact and take part in the storyline. I’m definitely going to try out one or more of the games listed above.
