View Full Version : Zak (or Something) Games

Does someone happen to have these? I remember that you played them by typing commands ("open door" "walk to door 3" etc.), yet it had graphics quite like Maniac Mansion if I remember right. Don't know even if Zak is the real name... I tried to search already (and just let's have a look and someone WILL point at me, laugh and say that they already are here or something...)

Well, what you're thinking of is Zak Mckracken and the Alien Mind Benders. But I'm pretty sure it's protected by the ESA, and LucasArts, so sorry.

no. it's command (clickable) interfaced, like moneky island.
besides he said it wasn'y mcKraken right in the begining

Is it any of ZORK (http://www.abandonia.com/genre.php?search=ZORK) games?

Maybe you're thinking of Larry games? Or LesManley? Early episodes had OK graphics, but you had to type the commands...

BTW: Have you tried looking through our adventure section? Zak McKracken and Maniac Mansion are both up, just like Larry series...
I doubt it's Zork - it had no graphics.

There are many AGS games. Is it made with AGS?

Well, I'll see the ZORKs. Doesn't sound familiar, anyway...
And I'm kinda sure I'd remember if it was a Larry game :D

And no, it isn't a AGS game, since it existed in... hm, like, 1995 or something?

Because AGS is a superior gaming engine.

Try typing 'Zak' on HOTU or other abandonware sites. If you don't find it. Google for 'Zak game'. But if you're very sure (75%+) it wasn't Zak just search abandonware sites in the 'Z' catagory.
