Help with the game Frotz

This is my first post so I wasn't sure which thread to put this topic in, but I was wondering if I could get a good explanantion for the game Frotz.

I love text adventure games, and ths game seems really interesting, and a real brain tester, and I was wndering if someone had a more better detail of how to play the game than the explanation given when you download the game.

I sort of understand the basis of the game but I need more help.

1. Frotz isn't a game. It is an emulator (or interpreter, if you will.)
2. Touch the 'i' icon at the top of the screen. Then touch 'getting started.' That will explain everything you need to know.

The stories in that app are written by different authors, so they have some varied command rules. Usually, typing "help" or "info" gets you some in-game hints.

Here's a beginners' guide to playing interactive fiction like the ones in Frotz. More resources on site.

I also had another question, you see I wanted to download the game tap tap revenge 2 lite on the app store and they told me taht couldn't upload it at the time, but in my umm home screens there is a blank gray square that's has the bar where it shows it's loading, but it's still there after 2 days, and I already downloaded the game tap tap revenge 2 lite, so how do I delete it?

I already trie the usual way to get rid of the game, but there is no x button to get rid of it.

That used to happen to me in the OS 1.x days. Have you tried restarting your device? Have you tried syncing with iTunes?

I hope it's okay to bump this thread with a new question (wasn't sure whether it would be better to make a new topic).

I'm just wondering if anyone knows anything about the file transfer thing and whether it works on a 1st gen Touch. I have a file for the Lurking Horror but when I touch the 'start file transfer' button in Frotz, the button turns blue and it just hangs. Doesn't seem to do anything. Any ideas?

Now apparently if I could upload it somewhere, I could point the Frotz browser to it but the only file services I know don't do direct downloads. I tried rapidshare but it doesn't work as it has to go through the rapidshare pages and Frotz doesn't like that.

Any help would be really appreciated!
