I have a box filled with all the old zork games and a whole bunch of text based games and some old dos games ... too bad they're all on 5.25 and 3.5 floppy disk. I would love to play them again

This is how great games used to be, and still fun to this day.

I played The Hitchiker's Guide To The Galaxy on my Commodore 64C... Still have them and still Do!

I first played Zork when Dos was the only way to play. No pictures. "You're standing by a mailbox." That's how it started..Hopefully it has improved since then.


guess what added this comment on 2013-06-23 :

Did anyone else notice when Sheldon played this on the Big Bang Theory he used a command that doesn't exist? I tried "hit with axe" and it doesn't work

biggest big bang theory fan ever! added this comment on 2013-04-26 :

I played this before, it's amazing!

Sheldon is funny on the big bang theory when he plays it.

This is a great game and I recommend that you play it, I was inspired to play this game by the big bang theory when Sheldon plays Zork and I thought that I would give it a try, so yeah... download it and have fun :)

You can save by saying "Save" to the game. I believe this is how you save...not sure

Played this one last night and found it hard to quit playing. Very entertaining. Tested my powers of imagination and my memory. I had played a similar game years ago, maybe this is the one. I lost it and thought I'd never see it again. Thank you, myabandonware for making these games available. Your site is easy to navigate and fun.
