Named after a Zorkian spell to render something luminous (in turn derived from MIT hacker jargon), Frotz has long been the de facto standard Z-machine interpreter -- the Z-machine being the "Zork" virtual machine devised by the brains at Infocom to allow their games' data structures to be used on a plethora of different hardware platforms without requiring slow and costly ports of every game to every platform.

Three decades later and the latest conversion of this technology is to a portable machine that doesn't even have a keyboard! Not only is the iPhone's Frotz capable of running most any (non-graphical) Z-machine game, by Infocom or amateur alike, but it also comes bundled with two dozen top-ranked Z-machine games, including:
