    Works great

    Worked with every file I tried so far. Nice to see some free apps for a change, and this one brought back some life to a few games I no longer have time time to set in front of my pc to play.
    In a time where all games have turned into mindless tap and play I was thrilled to get a real brain game on my Nook Color.
    Get it before they start to charge for this app.

    Really great and FREE!

    Really addicting! It helps improve lateral thinking and expand your way of thinking. The only tricky part is finding some good IF stories for your style. I recommend Adventureland and Don't Pee Yourself!! Have fun and get this free app!!!!!!!

But over all thise is amazing and will last you a long time.

    Need more info

    I actually have a compliation CD with all the old Infocom games on it, but I have tried repeatedly to put the files on my Nook, and the app seems unable to find them!

    Where do you put the .z5 files for the app to see them? This issue is the only thing keeping me from giving you a perfect 5 star rating. An answer would be appreciated; a quick answer even more so.

    Frustrating

    It takes forever to find one you actually like and when you find some the words you type in are supposed to make sense but it dosen't accept them. I usally like these things but this one gets on my nerves
