First computer game I ever owned, got a C-64 and Zork I for my 10th birthday in 1984. My young mind was completely blown away by the concept that I was inside the "story" and could actually control what happened. I put hundreds of hours into it before I finally solved every puzzle and collected every treasure. It was the beginning of a life long love affair with adventure/RPG′s that still continues today.

for those using dosbox, try dfend reloaded. its dosbox but with a gui. drag your game and drop it into the window. Most games set up with a single click.
Use DosBox people. This is an old game, you can′t run it natively on modern Windows.
help i cant get it to install im using windows 8.1 and i keep getting an error saying this app can′t run on your pc to find a version for your pc check with the software publisher
How do i install it on my PC with Windows 10?
PLEEEEEAAASE! I used to LOVE this game and REALLY want to play it again….
Or, maybe install it on my phone!

I tried to download the DOS version of this game, and it said the file wasn′t found on this server
infocom was great. like ad&d ,you knoiw, just make up whatevr you want to in your mind
Infocom Games were like video game books.
Words with your imagination for graphics and your intelligence to keep your characters alive. Infocom was the best!
Hope these downloads are the real deal.
I haven′t played Zork since my Commodore 64 days. I mastered all of the Zork games had have missed them these many years. Can′t wait to get started.
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
you can play Zork 1, 2, & 3 online @ http://www.ironrealms.com/zork
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.
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
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
