Have to love a Classic

Cockatrice

NO I mean it. You can't love this game unless you love the older games. I'm glad I do as I truely enjoy playing this. It's an old text based game that is a true to the way it was. For those that like modern day graphics and gameplay where you don't need to think about it all to much, stay away. Not saying I don't I just love this as it brings back that days of good gameplay. When it was you, the computer and a lot of map making and writting, just so you remember how you got there and how to get away. I suggest a try at it, it's free, so it's worth somewhat of a shot.

Great piece of nostalgia!!

This game brings back a flood of memories from my youth, I remember sitting in front of a glowing green screen as a young teenager, exploring the world of Zork on various 8 bit machines at the time. This is a faithful rendition of the original and I am glad to see the author has updated it to take advantage of the larger screen of the iPad.

The first reviewer does not realize that Dungeon IS Zork, Dungeon was the original name of Zork before it was commercialized.

Dungeon was first...

The previous reviewer isn't up on hist adventure game history. Dungeon came before Zork. It was programmer by the same people, and then they moved on to Infocom to sell Dungeon as Zork, improve their adventure game programming language, and go on to make many of the best text adventures of all time. IDungeon is a good port of the original, right down to the green text like on an old dumb terminal. I wonder if there is a setting for amber text? Worth an extra star, if so :)
