Zork Quest 1 and 2 were part if Infocom’s interactive comicbook range (Infocomics) and neither have much to do with the Zork universe as it is told in the original games.
Zork Quest 1 revolves around you hunting for treasure in the ruins of a castle – somewhat like the original Zork except for the additions of graphics, sound and animation.
Of these new additions it is hard to say anything positive, if anything they detract from the story telling process, which is what makes Infocom adventures so good in the first place. The story itself is quite good, and it’s probably best if you see this as an Infocom adventure lite
Play this, then go and play some of the other Infocom games on the site, you’ll see what I mean.
