Seriously, thats all I care about on the iPhone/iPod touch. Does that make me sick in the head?

Wow...if HHGTTG makes it, it'll finally make sense to get an iTouch. Now if only we could get those great World Builder games back.

I am sure the author and owner will have some comment on this port of their work.

Frotz is a very polished z-code interpreter for the iPhone and "Advent" is available in z-code form.  So this same game can be played that way.

Advent can be installed in Frotz by pressing the Browse ifdb button in iPhone Frotz and searching for Crwother (one of the original authors) - then choose "Adventure" then choose one of the files ending in .z5 (There are Swedish, German and French language versions available too).

This gives you the more sophisticated Frotz UI, but still with the pleasure of figuring out what "xyzzy" means.
