Amazing App I used to have this app on my Nook, and it's still great! I recommend this to anyone who likes text-based adventures. My favorite game is "Reverberations."

Not bad, some issues This is not a bad interpreter, but it could use some polishing. There's no cover art support and sometimes pop up boxes (which Curses! makes extensive use of) remain on the screen when they should disappear.

Great and all but... When will this be able to support Glux and by extension .gblorb stories? :)

Best Interpreter for Android I periodically try all the IF games and interpreters on the market, and ZMPP is consistently the best interpreter for Android. No more to say, really.

Fun Love the stories. Wish some of them had a "help" feature. Otherwise, perfect. :)
