Do you remember the days of playing text adventures? First there was the original Adventure - Colossal Caves which had you saying XYZZY and PLUGH. Then came ZORK, one of the greatest of them all, that had three text adventures and then a series of graphical ones as the game world progressed.
The text adventure is back, and it's FREE!! The game has been ported to PHP and is now available on line for your playing pleasure. The same white house, that you climb through the window in the back. The same battery-powered lantern to keep away the grues. The same elven sword, used to protect yourself from other nasties.
Shut down your GEforce 4 for a while and exercise the graphics of your mind! Wander amongst tricky puzzles and complex riddles. There are all sorts of great references in this game that, if you played it when you were younger, you might have completely missed. If you haven't played it at all, now is the time to enjoy it!!
See how quickly you can win the game, and be sure to come by the forum if you're stuck! While I haven't written a walkthrough for the game, I've certainly played it enough that I could answer your questions rather quickly :)
