TOP GAMEPLAY HIGHLIGHTS
There are several different achievements that you can get in this game, by replaying the game several times. These achievements are saved when you sign up on the site —more on the achievements below.
Dot-matrix is found on the left side of the screen. There is a dot matrix printer that you can click on to reveal a dot-matrix note.
This note gives you instructions for the main achievements and how to get started on this game.
You will see a sticky note on the computer that says, "LAUNCH GAME. TYPE: ZORK." This is referring to the computer screen that reads "Terminal 0." Click on the screen, and you will be prompted to type the name of the game to start it. You will type 'Zork,' and the game will begin.
As stated, there are several achievements in Zork that you can get. We found a total of 28 achievements, to be precise. There could be more, but that is for you to find in your playthrough.
There are five main achievements that you must get in order to get to the next part of the easter egg. These achievements are:
- Easter Egg: Get the jeweled egg
- With Great Effort: Enter the house
- Bat Repellent: Get the Garlic
- Dungeon Delver: Enter the Great Underground Empire
- Night Vision: Light up the Cellar or the Attic
- Zork Adventurer: Earn your first achievements in Zork
You will also notice an achievement called 'Opening Move.' This achievement is not essential. You get this achievement for signing up on the site.
To get these achievements, simply copy the following commands. You will get all the achievements following the same route as us, as shown below, when the game starts.
Once you've unlocked all these achievements, you will get a link to go to and put in your mailing address. We're assuming that the developers will mail something to your address that will be used for the next part of the easter egg.
Apart from the achievements mentioned earlier, Zork has a total of 28 achievements that you can get. This game is based around trial and error method since the events that occur are entirely random and not in our control.
But, completing the full game will give you another achievement called 'Escaped From Zork' and this one gives you a link to another PawnTakesPawn URL (pawntakespawn.com/pitchblack). This site is brand new and has a note in the middle that reads as follows:
The last words, "More to come," indicates this easter egg will continue in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.
Zork's Link to Black Ops
If you're a fan of the original Black Ops, then you should remember that Zork is also available to play in Black Ops as part of an easter egg. You can free Mason from his chair on the main menu screen and find an old computer right behind the chair.
You could play this exact same game on that computer- some classic nostalgic throwback for fans!
