Zork Zero: The Revenge of Megaboz review

Computer Gaming World - Issue 55 (1989): "Zork Zero is a very well documented and user friendly game. Overall, it is a worthy addition to the Zork series and is, by far, the best one to date. Players who like text games will definitely love this game. Even those who don't usually like text games or are "not sure" about them will probably be  pleasantly surprised with Zork Zero. Frankly, Zork Zero is probably the best text adventure out there. It is a lot better than many animated ones. Few animated games have Zork Zero's size and depth.
"When is a zero not a zero?" asks the jester. 'When it is Zork Zero!" you answer. "Right!" says the jester as he turns you into a rutabaga."

Collector's corner:

The original box contained the following feelies:

  • a calendar named "The Flathead Calendar 883"
  • a folded map
  • folded blueprints with a yellow Post-it note attached
  • and a scrap of parchment
