    Just wondering if anyone knows of an App which will allow me to play Interactive Fiction games on my Hero. Something like Frotz which is available on all other platforms.

    All help greatly received :)

    This is fine for z-code/inform IF, but are there any interpreters out (or coming) for other formats like TADS?

    You can play tads games using AnDOSBox and running dos version of tads
    Use adosbox if you have physical qwerty keyboard
    use AnDOSBox for touch only devices

    I've begun working on a mod of Hunky Punk (the Android app by Rafał Rzepecki) to play Tads games along with a few other enhancements. There's still lots of work to do, but it would be great to have some willing testers to submit issues and other feedback.

    Current Improvements include:
    • Tads support (Tads 2.5.14, 3.0.18)
    • improved Z-code support (Frotz 2.50)
    • blorb support
    • tap to scroll
    • font preference
    • improved stability

    This first alpha release is called "HunkyMod 0.1 alpha" and can be downloaded here:

    Please submit issues and feature requests here:
