Spoof of Zork II, by Dave Lebling, Marc Blank

Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


A parody of Zork 2: The Wizard of Frobozz, with an urban setting and a tapdancing chicken organ as the villain. Smaller, easier, sillier, and less biting than Pork 1. Entirely based on scenes from Zork 2 - thus, only of interest to people familiar with that game, and even to them, only as a mild amusement. Contains a LGOP-style "Lewd mode" which only affects one scene. The copy of the AGT runtime included seems to have the same problems with saved games as .

-- Carl Muckenhoupt

SynTax
Again, there are similarities between this game and the original but they are not so striking or so amusing as Pork 1 cf. Zork 1. The Carousel Room is replaced by a Smoke-filled Room and one exit will lead you to a Riddle Room and once through there, you will have to find a way to go up in the world just as in Zork 2. The Gizzard also has a series of spells to cast on you, all beginning with "G" and they'll frustrate you just as much as the wizard of Frobozz's "F" spells. But other additions, including a Junkyard, a Picnic Area and Parking Lot complete with a group of unfriendly bikers destroy the atmosphere somewhat.
