Hi

I've just got my port of the old Psion 5 version of Frotz up and running on the 9210. This allows you to play classic text based games such as Zork or other interactive fiction on the 9210!

I need a couple of beta-testers who are familar with how Zork plays so I can see if I've got this right [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

Heres a screenshot of Zork 1 - it seems to work fine so far - a few bugs on loading and saving games, and a crash on Exit are all I've found so far...

Cheers!

-Andy

Hi Andy,

I have enjoyed many a game using Frotz5 on a long train journey, would love to beta test a port for the 9210.

Regards

Do you have access to a 9210 or do you need an emulator build?
