So, one way to run it on OS X isn't running it on OS X at all - download dosbox here: http://sourceforge.net/project/sh...e_id=46709
Then download the PC versions. Extract them all to one folder, (I did it in ~/zork). Then mount that folder as a drive in dosbox. (ex. mount c ~/zork)

Or on OSX, use Zoom http://www.logicalshift.demon.co..../zoom.html.
Download and install Zoom. Download the PC version of zork(1,2,or 3), rename Data/Zork1.dat to Data/Zork1.z8 . Double click Zork1.z8.

Dosbox [dosbox.com] is needed on x64 versions of Windows as well (such as Vista x64).

Does this count as a game NOW?

I spent THOUSANDS of hours playing these "games" in the 80s.

"You are standing in an open field west of a white house, with a boarded front door. There is a small mailbox here."

Now this brings back some memories,spent many hours with this as a kid. Back in the day when games actually made you use some imagination and intelligence. Repped for nostalgia and text adventure games.

I remember this game from forever ago. Never got into it though since I was like 6 when I ran across it in '88 and duck hunt was better for those of us without an attention span. Gonna try it now.....

If you click the link WITH THE TITLE you will receive the Windows download. If you click where it says Mac download you will receive the Mac version. Also, clicking on the graphic downloads the Windows version.

Hope this helps.

I had these for a C64 and my Commodore Amiga. Sad when you need a walk through guide for a text adventure. Thank you Lord British for Ultima adventures and allowing me to put these away forever.

Guess they would come in handy if I ever get too full of myself. It isn't hard to be humble when you've gotten stuck in a maze somewhere deep in Zork III.

It should be noted that mac users can only use this if they have the classic environment.
