Text based games?

Hey guys, I recently started playing survivor z and kinda like this genre of game that let's me get fully absorbed in. What are some other text/books games similar to this? Thanks!

Here's a list of text based RPGs. I recommend King of Dragon Pass and the Gamebook Adventure series (Tinman Games). The Dreamhold is also an interesting text based adventure/RPG that is free.

I haven't played it yet, but there is one called Frotz. From what I understand it is a iOS collection of classic text adventures. I think it still might be free, too.

Cthulhu Uber Alles is actually pretty good. And Square Enix's imaginary range is free and pretty good too.

Lost Treasures of Infocom for IF.
Frotz for tonnes of free IF that you'll never finish playing...

Sherlock 1 (Choose Your Own Adventure type of two Sherlock mysteries)

Crime & Puzzlement (a series of mysteries to solve)

All the official "Choice Of" games. The affiliated ones don't seem as good.

Very fun game in my opinion, All you do is Click to attack monsters which give xp/possible items, you can also attack bosses which spawn every hour and play/talk with other people who also play it! At least give it a try, you might find something amazing in this game !
