    Default Announcing iPhoneFrotz - Infocom/Z-Machine Interactive Fiction Player

    Take advantage of those crisp high-resolution fonts on your iPhone to relive the glory days of the Great Underground Empire, or play any of hundreds of great works from the Interactive Fiction archive.

    Hopefully there are other people out there besides me who will be into this. :-)

    You have no clue how happy this makes me! I was thinking that I might ought to figure out how to port frotz over, but you did it! Fantastic!

    I made a quick icon for Frotz if anyone is interested.

    Default New version of Frotz with landscape support

    Frotz has been updated: http://code.google.com/p/iphonefrotz/

    Version 0.4 now supports:

    • Landscape mode
    • Text re-flow on selecting a new font or rotating the phone
    • Limited IF-specific word completion ('x' -> 'examiine', etc.)
    • Improved stability of the auto-save feature


    (Many thanks to allen.porter for help figuring out landscape keyboard issues.)

    Awesome... if you don't mind, I'll use your icon in the next update.

    (I think it might be nice to add a '>' prompt below the Frotz text, though.)

    How about this one...



    I like that the "F" is centered. Adding the '>' under I think works well.
