Activision's 'The Lost Treasures Of Infocom' Immortalises 27 Classic Text Adventures On iOS Devices

Activisions-The-Lost-Treasures-Of-Infocom-Immortalises-27-Classic-Text-Adventures-On-iOS-DevicesThe text based adventure genre today is a distant memory for many retro gamers. With systems today providing everything you need to visually experience a game, the imagination side of things is a long lost past time. Fans of the genre, however, can now look towards Activision's celebration of the genre, The Lost Treasures Of Infocom.

This new Apple iOS app is a collection of most of the iconic text adventures Infocom created in the eighties, along with their accompanying paperwork - maps, original instruction booklets and InvisiClues hint books. The application comes bundled with the original Zork title, Zork I: The Great Underground Empire, while the remaining games need to be bought in packs, with one including the never seen before Zork: The Undiscovered Underground.

Argh, no Android version? This'd be great for my ASUS TF201, as it has a keyboard dock.

The are so very well done, amazing how hard these games where though :) was playing Wishbringer with my wife last night, and we got super stuck... Great work though on the games, you get 3D boxes, instructions, feelies etc... great :)

I have the Asus TF300 so I'd be interested in an Android version as well.
They have done a good job on the interface from the looks, and the games are cheap enough - would buy again!

Of course, if you don't want to wait, you could download any of the free Z interpreters.
