General Info:

  • IFDB - the Interactive Fiction Database is a comprehensive database of games, old and new alike.
  • IF Wiki - a wiki about, well, Interactive Fiction!
  • The Interactive Fiction Archive - Stephen Granade and David Kinder are doing a tremendous job of maintaining this site dedicated to all sorts of adventure games. Note that it is not easy to navigate.
  • The 8-bit Adventure World is a central for adventure games download for all the 8-bit machines.
  • The Beginner's Guide to Playing IF is a useful resource.
  • Gaming After 40 is a terrific blog about classic text adventures.
  • IF Reviews features reviews of modern as well as classic titles.


Interest: Massive. Probably has the largest selection of adventure games for any computer. World of Spectrum lists over 2,000 games!

  • World of Spectrum - a fabulous site and the only Spectrum page you'll ever want to visit. Run by Martijn van der Heide. This site has the largest number of adventure games for any computer anywhere on the net!
  • The TZX Vault does a terrific job of preserving Spectrum software, including rare adventure games.
  • Zenobi - the publisher of more than 200 text adventures has an informative site here. They sell all their games on a cd for a mere £5, so if you enjoy Zenobi's adventures, I strongly urge you to support them in this manner.


Commodore C64

Interest: Massive. Large numbers of quality games that also boast some of the best graphics and sonics of the 8-bit machines. And yes, there are lots of stinkers, too.

  • Gamebase64 is a massive project that covers (almost) every games ever released for the C64!
  • Lemon 64 is an outstanding collection of C64 games, including adventures.
  • links to many remakes of C64 games.


Apple II

Interest: Large. The selection isn't as huge as for C64 or Spectrum, but since the games only come on disks, they generally tend to be quite large. In addition, they load a great deal faster than their C64 disk counterparts. Unfortunately, the Apple II emulation scene isn't exactly teeming with life.

  • Asimov - has a large number of of Apple II adventures.


Interest: Medium. The BBC has a number of unique games, including some excellent offerings from Acornsoft. A lot of them are technically primitive, but worth your while all the same.



Interest: Medium. Quite a lot of games are available, but few that are not running on C64 or Spectrum as well. Exception: games in French are abundant.

  • Amstrad CPC - this site has a lot of interesting adventures, including the infamous Philosopher's Quest.

  • The Balrog a.k.a. Stu Whyte runs an excellent site about Amstrad adventures, including a complete list of every Amstrad adventure ever released![archived link]
  • CPC Game Reviews reviews all sorts of titles, including adventure games.


Interest: Small-medium. The range of games available is fairly small and many of them are quite primitive. There are, however, a number of games for Oric that weren't released in other formats, including many titles in French. The emulation scene seems very limited.
