Wow, nice =D

I just wish I had enough patience for text games.

I used to play MUDS back in the BBS days but now I have gotten old and lazy.

In fact I have hardly ever even read any books fully. I think The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings may be the only books I read fully and enjoyed (and wasnt forced to by school)

Really? Actually there are LOTS of text games based on LotR books......I'll add some to the list, and if you want to collaborate....just call for them.

I will start working on reviews for The Kobayashi Alternative and Final Contact. May as well get the whole trilogy up.

I may try to do Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy later on unless someone else wants to tackle it.

Anyway, I would do a review for these but I am VERY busy so I'll just support you for now. k:

I can upload Softporn, but I can't write a review since I haven't played it and don't plan to.

And then let me say.....

Are you talking about the predeccor for Leisure Suit Larry? Softporn Adventure? Which is a textbased adventure.... or are you talking about Hentai games, and Stip-poker?

Text adventures are nice, but how about a text RPG? I have an old game called Zyll dated 1984, released by IBM for the original PC. I had no way of even running it until recently because it's on a 5.25" 360K floppy disk, but I've got a drive now. It plays a neat little tune through the PC speaker when you start it (though it doesn't seem to play properly in XP), and then asks which type of game you want to play. This is as far as I can get as I can't seem to get it to accept any input. I may try it out in DOSbox later.
