. The feature of automatically downloading games is great. But there's a huge bug: no scrolling. Hint to players: disable your network connection to get rid of the annoying ads.

Needs more work I want to be able to choose the font, not just its size, and I should be able to access Z-code files already on my device. Then there's the robbery of immersion caused by the fact that this app won't let you move up and down the page to get all the info. Only games with a walkthrough available should be played in ZMPP. EDIT: Just lost its last star for lack of a search facility.

Excellent I'm new to the Interactive-Fiction world, and this app has been nothing but helpful. The perfect enabler ;)

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.
