Lost Treasures of Infocom question

Is there anybody who plaid the Lost Treasures of Infocom?

I wanted to ask whether the games interface is different, because of the updated interpreter, in particular for the ones with graphic, like Journey.

I ask, because the only screenshot in the collection page in HOL is on Workbench 3.0, with a different font than the one of the same game in its own page. Just curious whether it's that the case, or it is just different Workbench version:

http://hol.abime.net/717

[edit: apolgies, I realised Journey is not in that collection , but in a different one, released in 1996, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classi...ces_of_Infocom ... Still, if anybody has plaid that the question is the same ]

According to my information, the 1996 one was only for DOS and Mac.

The first HOL screenshot you linked shows the game running in the Frotz interpreter. Frotz was not included with the game (it didn't exist then and is not an Infocom product), so that screenshot is misleading.

Playing Infocom games with a third-party interpreter like Frotz is a nicer experience than the original bare-bones Amiga interpreter.

Cool, thank you! (I think I used Frotz to play Anchorhead back in 2002 or 2003, but on Windows, never on Amiga yet)
