CellarDoor is the latest in a long lineage of Interactive Fiction interpreters for PalmOS devices. Based on the code of Fangorn's CliFrotz 1.6, CellarDoor maintains support for Z-Machine story files, while adding support for Glulx stories, as well as Z-Machine and Glulx stories wrapped in the Blorb file format (.zblorb and .gblorb files). CliFrotz was based on the Frotz v2.43 interpreter. Frotz is an Interactive Fiction interpreter that plays Z-Machine (Infocom, Inform, Z-Code) games such as Zork and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. CliFrotz supported Z1-Z8 games and Z6 MG1 graphics. CellarDoor adds Glulx support via the Git interpreter (1.2) and uses a modified version of the CheapGlk library (0.9.0). It supports JPEG and PNG graphics, if they are found in Blorb files. It requires a hi-res screen, OS4 or later, an expansion card and the large dynamic memory area available from OS4 onwards. If your handheld does not meet these requirements, you may want to try Frobnitz, PilotFrotz or Kronos.
