Can I use win frotz to play these games? Do I need a different interpreter?
If so what one?

Hi Dark,
Thanks for that! I've gotten 13 or so from Shaun like spell breaker, zork,
enchanter, starcross, infidel, and others, but I'm still missing others like
the lurking horror and seastawker.
Best Regards,
Hayden

Hi.

If you go to http://if.illuminion.de/infocom.html you can find a lot of the 
old infocom games which you can then just download.

To play them without compatibility problems you can just open the zcode 
inform files themselves in a frotz interpreter.

hth.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.
