Games and 3rd party updates for defunct editors!

No theme this time. Well, I guess the theme is "what asie uploaded from his streams". Expect that to be a recurring theme actually.

Hey wait a second.

This ZZT museum isn't as impressive as mine, IMO. It basically replicates DEMO.ZZT with a little inspiration from TOUR.ZZT. It also starts on the wrong board.

Some updated documentation and user-defined fades for the now defunct ZZT AdvancEditor. In its time, this would have been useful to have, but as ZZTAE remained trapped on DOS platforms it isn't really anything more than an interesting historical artifact.

A very abstract space adventure that doesn't seem to have much of a story to it?

It begins with a mid-warped group of international skydiving Power-Rangers kidnapping a shepherd's mooses [sic]. It then turns into liberating a town from a dictatorial governor. But then you do in fact rescue the moose.

I love this title screen even if it spells "revenge" wrong. (It's spelled correctly within the game.) The city was flooded and now it's up to you to find the person responsible and kill them.

Oops this one sure does use an old-timey racial slur in it. Maybe try one of the countless other goofy low quality ZZT adventure games with absurd plots out there.

Oh hey, it's the prequel to Mega-World and Mega-Kingdom. A short and simple adventure with some inspiration from City of ZZT's robot engine.

A new earliest Mark McIntyre game. This is another basic adventure, but compared to what's been published lately it focuses on objects a bit more than just shooting creatures as much of the game consists of a town to explore.

Another by Mark. This one has a very stylish title screen. Like ZZT Museum this is guide to playing ZZT worlds, but goes into more depth explaining how some games use gems as currency in shops, which elements can come in different colors, and so on.

A game about mowing lawns. This consists on stepping on a thousand forest tiles and relies on the honor system to tell when the lawn has been mowed successfully. I swore I made a port of Lawn Mower to ZZT for a ZZTV channel but can find no such thing, so you'll have to stick with the original.

Falsely accused of kidnapping the princess you have to escape from the dungeon. Everything about this game makes it look like it has no respect for your time.

An adventure to chase down the red guy from the title screen. This one is doing some nice effects with its walls and looks kind of fun, though it is unfinished.
