Zork Undiscovered Underground is hardly unpublished.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.

Downloaded.

Wow, I must say the port is very well done. The interface, manuals, maps, feelies and invisiclues are easy to use.

I got the full game unlock, but that lacks the Invisiclues, so that is an additional and seperate IAP.

This holiday season is netting me enough games to last the whole of 2013...

Unfortunate that Hitchhiker's Guide can't be included, but that is an impressive list of titles just the same. Yes, you can play these in Frotz (or iDOS) but if you don't have legit copies, it's nice to support those publishers that are trying to keep their stuff "in print".

If you're like most people here, unplayed games picked up in 2011 should still see you through all of 2013. ^_^

Best surprise release ever - $10 is nothing for this fantastic collection. I already have most of these in Frotz (and actually own some original boxed Infocom games) but to have them wrapped up nicely in a bundle like this is wonderful.

Ha! Wow!!! I've already got one of the anthologies (and Suspended/C64) and was using Frotz, but this is definitely tempting. It really comes down to the interface and how easy it is to interact with any of the goodies (maps, booklets, etc.) they supplied with the originals.

I've bought these several times over now, between originals, Lost Treasures PC collections, and the later bundled versions. I'm still buying this one. This sort of release must be encouraged!

Not surprised that Hitchhiker's couldn't be included. Although I notice that Nord & Bert is also missing. Pity that Sherlock, Arthur, Shogun and Journey are missing too, but I assume the licensing for most of those must be prohibitive.
