The text-adventure-like intro screen is cute. Comes with Adventure and some other games.

A great way to play interactive fiction (text adventures) on your phone. Check out ifarchive.org for plenty of game files.

Awesome. Works great on the EVO... Press and hold the menu button to pull up the keyboard. 1 Question though... How do you save your progress?

Slow Lag Game begins to lag like crazy after first few minutes of play....it gets to the point where you don't want to play any longer. It's a great idea, but it shouldn't be this bad considering these games were played on some extremely old technology...If this is fixed I would rate higher....

Enjoyed the story line, but the app just stopped working! At first, my phone slowed down, then it froze, and then the menu/keypad didn't show up anymore. Too bad...otherwise a most enjoyable game!

No menu button in lollipop I don't like giving one star but I could not even get past the splash screen for lack of a menu button in lollipop

Ummm, I would have loved to try it... ...but I can't do anything after opening it because my phone doesn't have a dedicated menu button.
