Frotz.activity lets you play interactive fiction games on your XO laptop. This activity is a wrapper around the Unix port of [http://frotz.sourceforge.net/ Frotz], which is an interpreter for Infocom games and other Z-machine games. It includes one game, the classic [http://www.rickadams.org/adventure/ Adventure]. You can download more games here: [[Frotz/Games]].

= Reviews =
= Bugs =
* The Keep button doesn't save your progress.
= Feature requests =
* Ideally this would incorporate [http://www.inform-fiction.org Inform], so you could write interactive fiction as well as play it.
* I want to view source key to show me the source code for the current game. I hate getting stuck somewhere for an hour and having no clue how to proceed. For example, who could guess that "release bird" works but "open cage" does not? Who has enough patience to guess how to escape the mazes? [[User:Jpritikin|Jpritikin]] 13:15, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
