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?

EXTREMELY laggy. Would think it wouldn't have a problem. Is almost impossible to play...sadly.

One problem It keeps processing really slowly on my phone (LG g3) especially with zork. The text takes a long time to catch up with what I type. not a problem I have with any other apps, please fix.

LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!! I never thought I would ever see the old text games again, then here comes this Twisty emulator with four games plus the ability to download more! This is taking me back to my high school years in the early 80's & all of the excellent fun I had playing text games on my Commodore 64 & VIC-20! LOVE IT! The bugs are okay because the game is playable, but I encountered no big problems, anyway. Just typing delay issues. The developers of this emulator are forever in my gratitude. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

Slow laggy Great idea but after playing for few minutes it begins to lag like crazy, i can only imagine how bad it is on a slower phone. Mine is a LG G2 so shouldnt lag at all. If fixed ( figure its some sort of memory leak ) i'll rate it higher

Inaccessible, but has potential This app is completely inaccessible with talk back, but it has a lot of potential.
