May 6, 2016 - Zork Text-Based Game Chat Bot (http://m.me/playzork) is a classic text-based adventure game where players type commands to traverse through the landscape of the game.

We did a through review of the bot to see how usable it was and what our thoughts on it was. Below is a sample walkthrough of our experience:


Step 1: Start

Step 2: Text Command Frustrations

Initially, we were frustrated trying to figure out how to use it, but after many attempts, we finally figured it out how to proceed and play the game. Most action commands started with a verb follow by a noun. Each story message reveals clues on stuff to explore.


Step 3: Opened the Mailbox

Step 4: Received the Mailbox Leaflet

Once we got the leaflet, we read the leaflet, and it gave a brief introduction to the game.


Step 5: Walked to House with Door

We decided to close the mailbox and walked toward the house. We tried to knock on the door and open it but sadly found out that it was boarded up, no one home, and unopen-able.


Step 6: Opened Mailbox Again

We decided to open the mailbox again to check to see if the developers accounted that we already had the leaflet. And to our surprise, they did - well done on keeping the game state.


Step 7: Walked to Forest

Step 8: Attempted to Walk into the Forest

We walked / climbed down to the Rocky ledge then climbed back up the see the canyon view. At this point, we decided to stop the walkthrough so we do not reveal too much of the adventures in this game.


Conclusion

In conclusion, Zork Text-Based Game Chat Bot stayed true to its fictional textual game play form. We never played this type of game before but after discovering the game commands, it really forced us to use our mental visualization to traverse the adventures in this game. The game-play fitted perfectly with the way we already interact with Messenger, and with the absence of high quality graphics in modern games, this gem had prove that with a great concept, anything could be fun and playable.
