Just look at the pics, read the text and enjoy the nostalgia! :-) Game of the Week! is open to contributions so if you would like to contribute a game article for this page you're more than welcome to! Every article we receive will be considered!

Mini Zork I --
The Great Underground Empire
1987 Infocom
Programmed by Marc Blank & Dave Lebling

Most text of the present article comes from the news-item published in the forty nineth issue of the British C64 magazine ZZAP!64 (street date: April 20th, 1989).




hought Infocom games only came out on disk didn't you? Thought you'd never ever get round to playing it on cassette, did ya? Yeah well, you were wrong weren't you. Na na nya na na!

Yup. The first title in the Zork trilogy is now available (In slightly shortened form) on C64 cassette so all you tasty cassette owners out there can experience the wonders of an ancient underground empire and search for the fabulous wonders of Zork. Magic!

Well, nearly anyway. Actually, the whole thing takes about 15 minutes to load in, but once you've done that you'll be experiencing one of the greatest ZZAP! sizzling adventures of all time. If you haven't played it yet, and you're not bothered by the loading time, you could do worse than nip down to your nearest software shop and get hold of a copy for 9.99. Still think that's a bit pricey for such an old game -- even if it is a classic . . .
