Infocom adventure game run on PC using Windows FRONZ

All Infocom adventure games can be run on a PC using the amazing "Windows Fronz" program.
The Z type Infocom files are available on the Internet. Just select "All Files" and run the DAT file for each.

Enjoy

Also, there are at least two versions of Windows Frotz, one of which is called WinFrotz. I think they're separate ports of the original Frotz code to Windows, not branches of the same project, but I could be mistaken.
And then, of course, there are all the other Windows ZMachines. Filfre and Nitfol spring to mind, and there's also the multi-format Gargoyle.
