     This is my conversion of the original Fortran 77 game Zork which is an extended version of the Crowther/Woods Colossal Cave. This version has (I believe) all the Zork extensions such as the Dam, Balloon, Mirror Room, End Game etc. The VB code attempts to remain as close as possible the original FTN77 although this is not possible with some Fortran code such as Data and Equivalence however minimal changes have been made. The original Fortran statements that have been replaced (rather than converted) are still in place but 'Rem'd out. The GDT (game debugging tool) is in place. The original game had the text database encrypted, this version does not but the encryption routines are in place but commented out. There is also a folder called "Original" which contains all the original Fortran code and data files (but I've delete the 'walkthru' and solution files :) - sorry but that's too easy!)

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
