3. Games > 36. Play Zork on Your BlackBerry

Play Zork on Your BlackBerry

With this Java-based mini Infocom interpreter, you can play retro text adventures on your BlackBerry. You can even write your own games if you want!

“Open mailbox. Take leaflet and read it.” Those are the sentences you need to kick off a game of Zork, which is, to many, the prototypical text adventure. You’re more likely to hear these games referred to as interactive fiction these days, and although many things have changed since the days when Infocom and Adventure International owned the genre, these games are very much alive.

You’ll find a thriving community of interactive fiction gamers and authors at the Interactive Fiction Archive (http://www.ifarchive.org/). On this site, you’ll find hundreds of games, tools to create your own, and all sorts of information.
