Zork Quest 1: Assault on Egreth Castle
Review 1:
Infocom released Lane Mastodon, the world's first "interactive comic
book" in 1988 with little fanfare and even lesser reaction from the
gaming public. Apart from being the first electronic comic book, Lane
Mastodon and all subsequent Infocomics allows the viewer to change
perspective between characters, thus providing an excellent replay value
as you can replay the story from a different perspective. Three more
stories followed before Infocom decided to halt the unsuccessful venture.
The lackluster response was perhaps due to the fact that the comics--
with the exception of ZorkQuest, are based on original premises created
by Infocom designers. Furthermore, the then-primitive graphics technology
was not conducive to engaging animations. But then again, the dismal
sales of Marvel Comics CD-ROM comics today may be suggesting that comics
are best suited to print medium after all. Despite the name, the story of
the second Infocomics, ZorkQuest 1, actually has little to do with any
Zork game. Instead, it is a separate story set in the Zork universe. The
story revolves around treasure-hunting in the ruins of castle Duncanthrax
and the evil woozle that lurks within. A good story, although not as
captivating as the games or the Zork novels that Infocom published
earlier.

Review 2:

Zork Quest 1 and 2 were part if Infocom's interactive comicbook range
(Infocomics) and neither have much to do with the Zork universe as it is
told in the original games. Zork Quest 1 revolves around you hunting for
treasure in the ruins of a castle - somewhat like the original Zork
except for the additions of graphics, sound and animation. The story
itself is quite good, and it's probably best if you see this as an
Infocom adventure lite. Play this, then go and play some of the other
Infocom games on the site.
