    1.                                Introduction
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    
    Zork: The Undiscovered Underground is a fun freeware game that is a prequel to
    Zork Grand Inquisitor. It uses the same format as the first three Zork games:
    No graphics at all, and a text-based interface where commands must be typed in
    order to make progress through the game. The plot is simply to explore a
    recently discovered area of the Underground Empire, and also to escape it after
    the entrance crumbles behind the character. The difficulty is average and the
    length of the game is extremely short, but the descriptions are so well written
    and interesting to read that the game is definitely worth a play.
