I really fondly remember playing wishbringer and zork on my 8088 those games had some style; wishbringer came with a funny smelling glow in the dark 'rock' that i still have. I bought the last of their real games with the fancy mapping engine 'beyond zork' and was determined to beat it without buying the book or otherwise 'cheating' i think it took me two years (playing off and on). good times.
Hopefully this is something good - but I'd guess that rose colored glasses for those classics would make anything seem to suck in comparison. but something for a mobile device would make tons of sense.
