I recently played all the ZZT games made from 1991 to at least the end of 2003, maybe beyond - nearly two thousand games in all. Of those I have selected just 66 to be included in my list of "best ZZT games ever."
One of these is Four Seasons Revival by ringworm. Four seasons revival is not only the best ZZT game remake of all time, it is one of the best ZZT games, period. Some minor bugs very rarely make gameplay impossible, but like most of the games in this list, I was looking at concept, not delivery. The game's strongest point is its ability to provide a wide variety of experiences in such a short time, and its ability to maintain a theme throughout these experiences right through to the conclusion.
I give it my highest recommendation.
I was going to continue with the joke, I really was, but it's not bad enough.
But it's still pretty bad.
I really liked this, because he took that extremely ordinary first game and revamped it to where it was damn pretty and moody, persay. He gave it a lifeline, a style of its own. This is something every ZZT game needs, flava. TUDE, stahl, koscha, whatever you call it. And it had it, so it's goody in my book.
Journey through the Four Seasons in this surreal game by RingWorm. Solve puzzles and explore the mysterious land.
This game is just weird, but weird in a good way. It has a feeling of other-worldliness to it that really draws you in. The seasons change as you advance in the game, and it never truely talls you what its all about. While it is slightly buggy is some places, it is still playable. Play this if you want a unique game that might intreague you.
(+): Great mood, nicely-drawn playing area. (-): Buggy, "touch combat" is somewhat faulty.
