If you liked this you should try Activision's Zork Nemesis. I'd love to see a review of that from you, Aschultz.

I've always wanted to. Thanks for the reminder! I just need to find a cheap copy of it, and there I go.

It'd be a good Z game for the Alpha Marathon, too :).

I am wondering what other Infocom games you have played? I have played many other Infocom games like the Wishbringer series, Zork series and Planetfall series.

Sorry to say I found your review difficult to read and I'm not really sure why. Some parts parts made a point and other parts seemed to be sort of an "add-on" or stray though you felt you needed to add. Maybe because I never played or heard of this game it makes your story seem discombobulated, I don't know.

No problem. Feedback topics are for criticism, and I do want to be able to get things across to people who haven't played the game. That's where most people are able to. I see some stuff I could clean up, so maybe I'll look at that.

The game is deliberately unclear, or poetic, and it makes for an unusual entry. It's about more than getting a final score, or solving a case, or routing a bad guy. Trinity basically tries to give the feel of what it's like to try to stop the atom bomb, and the semi-futility of it, without really taking sides. It's almost a text adventure in pantomime, since nobody really talks.

I've pretty much written about all the Infocom games I played when I was younger & don't quite remember the list. However, I played through them all with a walkthrough and some are actually on my Alpha Marathon list, though I need to approach them without a quick solution.

The games are possible to find. The WinFrotz z-interpreter can run them. I think zork 1-3 are freeware as is Hitchhiker's Guide. The others...are available, but can't give details on this board I suspect.

ETA: I don't think I brought Leather Goddesses of Phobos over from GameFAQs. Hated that game. The humor wasn't my style.

Actually I still have my C64 and a whole stack of those games but I really have not played them for quite some time now.

I too seem to recall not liking Leather Godess. I know I didn't play it very long. Something about a blender is the last thing I remember.

I'll have to try Trinity sometime. Sounds a bit enigmatic though.
