Yeah its a bit annoying the filesize, at least the games once you buy those must be tiny. But it seems to be lots of graphic extras, like the boxes, maps and other stuff.

But very impressed, love compilations like this (The Activision Anthology was brilliant). Hope the IAP prices are okay

Wow. If only every week were the week before the App Store holiday freeze. Can't believe how much interesting stuff is rolling out tonight.

Wow this is a great surprise. These were some classic early RPG style games, they might look very basic but this came out in the days when you had to use your imagination for games such as this (eg text adventures or basic graphics)

Seems a great collection, obviously lots of IAP's but this could be brilliant

Zork Undiscovered Underground is hardly unpublished. It's been released several times before. I've got it on my Zork Anthology CD for PC and I think it's in Frotz too. However I think the new interface could work well for touch.
