Remake of old text adventure of interest?

I developed a remake of an old text adventure game from the AppleII/C64 days called "Masquerade" for the Android platform.

The effort put in to it was in my perspective tremendous but the user response wasn't what I expected.

Since I can reuse the remastered gfx and "only" need to port the engine to IPhone I'd like a honest opinion IF you think the game will be appreciated?

The game is very old school and a short clip can be viewed @ http://www.youtube.com/user/Jompe71

You can play the entire remake on the Android platform but I suppose this is the incorrect forum for such advertisement .

Please respond to this thread, only a "Y" or "N" will do.
(Do I need to say that the entire game is fully free, i.e. no LITE version. "Old school for everyone")

i love it, really. but i'm afraid that imo such a project is not to be a very succesfull one. when you look at point&click adventures which have been way more popular than text adventures in the last two decades and where those stand today, i don't think many people would jump to get this.

hell, i would pay but most people wouldn't, i guess.

Yes, I'd download it for sure.

And actually count me among the numbers that certainly would have paid for it.

Me too would have paid!

God, I love all you guys here for being so nice and polite...
Especially the RPG- and Adventure-Gamers...

My lord, how long is the last of these adventures ago?
Personally, I would love to play it.
And forget these Android-guys. Ungrateful bunch with no taste in phones...

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

I, for one would welcome such a game. But sadly it is my belief that if it doesn't involve violence, killing, bombs, explosions, death, blood, mayhem, carnage, murder, shooting people, etc that the youth of today would not be interested.

Todays gamers prefer games which include cutting a swath of unbridled, senseless, sociopathic destruction in a moral vacuum with no rhyme or reason.
