Hello everyone. This morning, I played my first cession of Legends of Zork. I
created my first character, Eldrex. He's a recently fired magic sword salesman.
I've managed to advance two levels and survive my first day's explorations of
the dark forest near the white house. The game is completely playable for us
blind Zork fans. However, when it comes to more minor points like choosing your
character avatar, there are no alt tags on the choices. I have no idea whether
what I perceive as a buff, rough and ready male adventurer is depicted visually
as a wafer-thin fashion model. The map is certainly functional enough for us as
the locations near enough to travel to are properly labelled. Exploration
doesn't rely on seeing anything. You just click on the "explore the dark
forest" or a similar link in order to search an area and have encounters. It's
a lot like Legend of the Green Dragon in that regard. I hope those who are
interested will try out this new browser based online game and take the time to
send feedback to the developers. Happy adventures, everyone.
