Text Adventure games with graphics

Hi:
Just a simple question: Is there a list of all of them/the best for Amiga?
I don't know how to search for them at HOL.

If not, can you recommend me some hundreds?

Well, at least the best ones.

Edit: Ups, well, now I get to them at HOL: http://hol.abime.net/hol_search.php?...subcategory=19

Now to know the best ones between "Total of game listing generated: 106,373,735"

Send a message via ICQ to Predseda
HOL list:

http://hol.abime.net/hol_search.php?...subcategory=19

or (with some added graphics):

http://hol.abime.net/hol_search.php?...subcategory=20


I recommend you Fish!, the plot of the game is really original.

Hehe. I was going to ask you, TCD. Thanks, but you'll see I've edited my post (you were fast). There are a couple....

I'm not going to try 106,373,735.

Edit: Can that amount be ok? There must be some typo I would have to spend a couple of reincarnations...

That number is the *total* number of advanced searches ever created... anyway, you can head over to Lore (www.abime.net) for a review weighted list of text-adventure games or even wager a chance at http://oagd.net/browse?q=tag%3Atextonly

Thanks. I didn't explain it right. I'm searching for Text but graphics too. The Title should be changed mods.

Edit: Thanks.

Back in the day I used to play on my Speccy with Hulk, The Hobbit, Gremlins...

On Lore you can see a metascore based on magazine reviews in case you're looking for the 'best' text-adventure games. Same on OAGD.net.

Note to Inner Demons: "Sir Rah went out of business before publishing this game." That game is really f*ed up, don't try.

Edit:
But the search on HOL by Predseda is better: http://hol.abime.net/hol_search.php?...subcategory=20

I think I will try Fish .
