Scott Adams' Adventures Apps
Another trip down nostalagia lane! If you enjoyed the article on playing Zork on OS X, you may also be interested in playing the Scott Adams' Adventures on your OS X box.

These were text-based adventure games written for a number of early computing platforms, including the Apple ][. You can read more about Scott Adams and his adventures on his home page. As I recall, there were about a dozen or so, all using the same basic two-word parser and featuring some good puzzles.

Over on the MacFixit boards, CapVideo has posted an explanation on how to run Scott's adventure programs under Mac OS X. If you're interested, check out the Scott Adams' Adventures thread for the details. You'll need the Developer Tools installed, and should be relatively comfortable with the command line.

I wasted a number of hours on Scott's adventures in my Apple ][ days; I can't wait to try these out this weekend!
