A mailbox with a leaflet? Perhaps Zork? I'll have to try it out and see for myself.

I'm sure it's obvious, but how do you load a saved game when you start up the app? I have already typed "save" before to save it, and the game just starts over when I restart the app.

That was the same thing I thought. So is this the original version of Zork? I really don't want to think that Zork ripped off the leaflet idea. After all, Zork was one of THE great text adventure games.
