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 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.

Okay Works mostly fine. Impossible to load extra games - fails to find any even though I've got heaps on my SD card in .z5 format

Playing IF in Twisty Enter command then press Enter z z z z z z z z z z z z z z So much time passes that you eventually fall asleep with boredom while waiting for the next section of text to come up on this horrendously laggy app.

Lags. It lags, a lot. My keyboard(hacker's keyboard) is to big for me to see the text, and when I scroll down all the way, it scrolls back up. >.<
