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

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

There is no greater literal use of the word irony than the concept of "digital feelies". ^_^

Yeah, if you don't care about these games and the assorted awesome junk that they used to come with - and face it, half the people reading this likely weren't even around on the planet back then, let alone playing these games - you might want to pass and stick with Frotz if you are into IF.

Of course, Frotz is still around half the size, so you decide. :P
