Text Adventures at Their Best
The part that's blowing my mind is just how well these games have made the translation to iOS. Yes, you could play them in Frotz [Free], assuming you had the files from a previous release, but you probably won't want to once you've had a chance to play with all the toys Activision has included.

An attractive package... but the interface is a little too slow for comfort.
Lost Treasures of Infocom can’t quite decide which audience it’s going for: existing interactive fiction fans or new players. It tries a few ease-of-use tricks to help attract interactive fiction newbies, but it also includes legacy things like scans of feelies, something that might confuse anyone who didn’t grow up with packaged versions of the games. Between that and the desperate attempt to wiggle extra in-app purchase cash out of each user, the whole experience ends up getting in the way of enjoying the games themselves. Despite being a gateway to dozens of hours of some of the best classic text adventures ever released, this version of Lost Treasures of Infocom just doesn’t quite get things together.
