What is Zork?

Zork is a text-based adventure game requiring you to travel to different areas and find treasures. You need to use various resources and navigate dangerous areas with caution to bring back the treasures and put them in a trophy case.

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

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.

Main Achievements

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.

All Achievements

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!

  1. There are actually a total of 29 achievements, being the one you don´t hav the butterfingers. Break the egg with something like a knife to get it, and if you receive a code from activision via postmail, you enter it in the redeem code part of the achivements to get the final 30th achievement

      1. They added some new achievements recently. If you are standing in front of the treasure case wile it holds the scarab, crystal skull, bag of coins, pot of gold, bracelet, crystal trident and say "Machination", "Insight", "Tribute", "Spectrum", "Avarice", and "Tempest" you will get 6 achievements and then be able to navigate to another page from the achievements link and be able to type in "FUGAZIFILE", "BURNBAG", "INTELFIRE", "INFOHAX", "SHREDITALL"and "GRIDSQUAR".

        This will unlock a retro skin for the large flatbed truck in Warzone and possibly something in the upcoming black Ops game.

          2. Hi, I'm really sorry but can you please translate that into English for me so that I may understand your question and answer accordingly, thanks!

          1. Hi Stuart, there are actually a total of 37 achievements in total once you've completed the whole easter egg. This article will be updated soon!

      1. Eaten by a Grue- From Kitchen, "Climb Stairs." Game will prompt that its dark and you could be eaten. Then "North."
        I'm having a blast.

      2. Yup!
        Go into the caves, there's a room called "Gas Chamber" either bring your 'Torch' or Light a match (Matchbook) and you'll go KABOOM!!

        To get the "Eaten by a Grue" achievement, simply turn off your 'Lantern' and enter other rooms. (Or whatever your light source is, Drop it or turn it off.)
        (Since you'll need to be in the dark)

        I Hope this helps! if you need details just let me know! I'll respond. 🙂

        1. Hi, I have unlocked 8 achievements in ZORK TERMINAL. But I want to unlock all of them! How to do that?

          My Achievements:

          Opening Move
          Easter Egg
          With Great Effort
          Bat Repellent
          Night Vision
          Dungeon Delver
          Zork Adventurer
          Armed and Dangerous

  2. So I did everything right, finished the game, but i cant get the rainbow bridge achievement for some reason. tried loading a new game and it didnt work either

    1. Hi Hannes, have you managed to reach the 'end of the rainbow'? Once you're at the end of the rainbow just wave your sceptre. Then it will say that the rainbow appears to be solid. After that just go east and you should get the achievement. You will be on the rainbow at this point.

  3. I just went into a room with bats with red eyes, like Noah's photo had on it. The room had a cable in it. I typed in "take cable" and I got redirected to a page that didn't exist. Has anyone else done something like this yet?

    1. Hey Nathaniel, I'm not sure which page you're talking about because after taking the cable, you can head back to the Smelly Room and head West to enter a new room called Bellows Room. Here you can plug in the cable to start up a machine. The full guide will be up soon!

  4. coloquei as senhas e apareceu a informação que deu tudo certo para abrir a skin do veiculo, mas não parece no COD a skin pra usar no veiculo, sera que fiz algo errado?

    1. Hi Cason, you're not late at all. You can still do it. I am not exactly sure why you cannot put in your email since that should be an option available to you regardless of the achievements being completed.

  5. Hi, I have unlocked 8 achievements in ZORK TERMINAL. But I want to unlock all of them! How to do that?

    My Achievements:

    Opening Move
    Easter Egg

    Zork Adventurer
    Armed and Dangerous

    1. Hi Shishir, thanks for your comment. To get all other achievements, you will have to complete the full ZORK game and might have to play the game several times in case you miss any.

      We recommend you follow this detailed guide to complete it: http://www.eristic.net/games/infocom/zork1.html

      After that, you can come back here to follow along with the rest of the achievements and ZORK guides.

    1. Hi Stephen. Yes, Breathtaking View is indeed one of the achievements. You can refer to our achievement lists given above to confirm.

  6. Hii so I lost my sword earlier on somehow when I died so now I have no way of killing the troll. Also through my phone I am in the maze while I'm still in the troll room on my laptop. I have logged in both of them. What do I do?

    1. Hi Nirjara, there's no way of knowing where the sword could have been except by going to the locations that you have already visited. When you go to each location, you will get information about the surroundings and what is in that room. Sorry, there's no easier method!

      1. Hey, has anyone figured out the kaboom challenge? I saw someone ask about it but the response I feel like was wrong. I think it is a challenge about the the game kaboom in cod mobile the club. The reason is the clue talks about following the bombers moves closely. I thought maybe Morse code. Anyone have any idea?

        1. Hi, you can get the Kaboom achievement by taking your torch as a light source and entering the Gas Room. YOu will blow yourself up, and that should give you the Kaboom achievement.

  7. I keep being eaten by a grue when I try to do the water and earth part, I've even try to restart all over, but the lantern keeps running out of energy, what do I am doing wrong ?

      1. Hi Kevin, yes there is an easter egg in the new COD Mobile lobby that allows you to get at least 3 codes. We can redeem those codes on the PTP website. The guide for that will be up soon as we have just received an email to redeem COD Mobile codes (as of writing this comment)

    1. Hi, you can get Adler skin in COD Mobile but only if you have pre-ordered Cold War BETA and played it. But for the achievements nothing else.

      1. I guess i can´t send you an att. here. but when oppening one of the prizes or codes, connected with the CoD Mobile i found a new lead photo.

    1. Hi Jack, you must have a sword in your inventory when you go to the Troll Room. Just save before heading inside as it is completely random, and the Troll can kill you.

      Save your game and then head inside the troll room. Once inside, type "Kill troll with sword," and you might have to type that in multiple times. It is completely random either you will kill the troll, or it will kill you. Regardless, you would have saved your game, so you can reload the last saved game by typing "restore" and you can re-try. Good luck!

  8. Hey man ,
    I just got an email from call of duty mobile which is a party of the easter egg .
    The email also has a image of the zork map(a part of it i think) and i am really confuse so i need help

    1. Hi Leo, we will have a full up to date guide very soon explaining all the puzzles ending Pawn Takes Pawn. And yes, we will also have a full list of achievements at the end of it.

        1. Hi Hassan, please i'am stuck here:

          "The room looks strange and unearthly and objects appear indistinct.
          Entrace to Hades
          You are outside a large gateway, on which is inscribed
          Abandon every hope all ye who enter here!
          The Gate is open; through it you can see a desolation, with a pile of mangled bodies in one corner. Thousands of voices, lamenting some hideous fate, can be heard.

          how do i go on? please help me, thanks! 🙂

          1. I Went out and back in zork and it's not the same anymore, now is White Cliffs Beach 🙁 one question, if i do restart, i loss all achivements?

          2. Hi Leo, sorry to get back to you a bit late. But, I think, you've died hence the reason you're in front of "entrance to hades."

            And, no. You will not lose your achievements if you restart your game. Remember, if you have signed into your pawntakespawn account, all the achievements once acquired are saved there. No matter what you do in Zork afterward. Good luck!

  9. I went to the "perseusisoutthere" page and watched the video, but I never get prompted for a password. So when/where do I enter the code to get those rewards?

    1. Hi Timmy, you can enter the password at pawntakespawn.com/colorbound. Make sure you log in to the site to be able to access it.

  10. Hey Hassan, I did the whole beginning zork part, but I never received the email to continue.. now I don’t know what to do.. any advice??

    1. Hi Rumetherex, you get multiple rewards along the way, including vehicle skins for Warzone and, yes, weapon skins for both Warzone and COD Mobile.

      After completing the full Pawn Takes Pawn easter egg, you get a lot more content for Warzone, COD: Mobile, and the upcoming game, Black Ops Cold War.

    1. Hi Ostrander, when you type in the code, were you presented with a screen that gives you a summary of the items redeemed? If yes, then it should definitely be in the game. FYI, it will not show the green light indicating that there is a new item.

      You can go to your weapon (AK-47) gunsmith and find the skin there.

  11. Hello, can someone tell me how I can get achievements "Access Granted and "Discovered Check"? Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Pedro, you can get the "Access Granted" achievement by calling the number that was previously on /deepcover. Even after the site has changed, you can still get the achievement if you call the number. The number is +1 (747) 223-8784

      To get "Discovered Check" you must go to pawntakespawn.com/discoveredcheck and type submit the six codes as mentioned in phase 7 of this guide. The six codes are AIREDALE, HEADWIND, WINDFALL, FREEBOARD, FATHOMS & SEACHANGE. Good luck!

  12. So apparently it's now impossible to get the "Access granted" achievement since the /deepcover page has been updated. I have every achievement except this. TRIGGERED!

    1. Hi Euseppi, some people have reported that they were still able to get 'Access Granted' achievement simply by calling the number +1 (747) 223-8784. Worth a try!

  13. Bonjour,

    Je viens de découvrir le site Pawn Takes Pawn, je n'ai donc aucun succès dessus hormis "Dead Draw"
    Je souhaiterai réaliser l'intégralité de ces défis.
    Avez-vous un guide réunissant l'ensemble de celles-ci.

    Thank you,
    Have a good day 😉

    1. Hi Lise, I'm assuming you're asking about all the achievements that you can get in PawnTakesPawn. First, you can follow our Phase 2 guide to get the first set of achievements. Then, you can go to http://www.eristic.net/games/infocom/zork1.html to complete the full Zork game to acquire the rest of the achievements ONLY related to the Zork game.

      Then, you may follow our guide as it covers all the achievements related to COD. Good luck!

      1. Bonsoir Hassan,

        Je vous remercie pour votre réponse.
        En revanche, durant mon aventure dans le jeu Zork, j'ai malheureusement mangé l'ail...
        De ce fait, sans ail, je ne peux franchir l'endroit avec une chauve-souris...
        OU TROUVER DE L'AIL ?
        De plus, je me suis retrouvé morte, comment ressusciter ??
        En espérant que quelqu'un puisse m'apporter la solution

        1. Hi Lise, I understand that you've eaten the garlic in the game and looking for a way to acquire it again? As far as my knowledge goes, there is no way to get the garlic once you've eaten it, and you may have to restart the game. You can restart the game on your same account, and you won't lose the achievements you have already acquired. So do not worry about the achievements.

          I am not aware of the method that brings you back to life, but once you come back to life, you spawn quite far away from where you die and lose all your items. So it is best if you restart the game.

          Remember to always save your game before doing something or going somewhere that could potentially kill you so that you may restore in case you die. Good luck!

    1. Hi Ruben, the 15 digit code for the safe is 431 371 688 520 954. It is mentioned in our guide as well should you need more information.

  14. StoneySilence in the images, and text, is either incorrect, or has been fixed at this point. I was able to get past the twistedanomalies page by trying "StonySilence", which worked.

    1. Hi Chris, sorry about that. This was a typing mistake on our part. It has been fixed now. You're correct. It is 'StonySilence' without an 'e' before the 'y.'

  15. What is the correct code for Miami? The code listed is "hlingualchaos" and it isn't accepted by the page. The info shows that it should be a 14-letter word and this word is only 13 letters long.

    1. Yeah, there was one letter missing from it. The correct code is 'htlingualchaos'

      It has been fixed in the guide as well. Good luck!

  16. Hey, I had a problem that someone else here had where even though I got the Zork Adventure achievement, I can't access the link to post my mailing address. I keep checking my achievements but it won't show the link. Could you help me figure out what to do?

    1. Hi Lagsicle, I think they have stopped mailing the postcards since that was possibly a limited-time event. Ever since we passed that stage of the easter egg, we haven't had any more postcards being mailed to anyone. I do not expect them to be mailing out any more postcards since the whole Pawn Takes Pawn easter egg has ended.

  17. When I put in the /shardofhistory code in it says that input was not correct and I'm confused because I put it in word for word in. What did I do wrong please help.

  18. When I put in the /shardofhistory code in it says that input was not correct and I'm confused because I put it in word for word in. What did I do wrong please help.

    1. Hi Kwithers, I am not sure where exactly you are putting this as a code. But, this is not a code. It is a URL that you can go to. pawntakespawn.com/shardsofhistory. Also, make sure you do not forget the letter 's' at the end of the 'shards'

      Good luck!

  19. Hi Hassan, for the achievement where you get the crystal skull in zork, I can't use the candles cause apparently, I left them burning by mistake while I was doing other stuff. Even my lantern has begun to dim. Any solution to this please?

    1. Hi Adebayo, it seems there is no way to get the candles back. It is best if you restarted the game. Note that you won't lose any of the achievements that you've earned so far. Only your Zork game progress will be reset.

      About the lantern. After a few turns, the lantern loses its oil as it is consumed to keep it lit. Please make sure you always turn it off when you are not underground or in the cellar. Only turn it on whenever you are going back in.

      Also, save your game occasionally so that you can restore it to the saved game in case something like losing the candles, for example, happens. You can save the game simply by typing "save" and load up the saved game by typing "restore"

      Good luck!

    1. Hi CJ, thanks for your comment. It is not possible to get the "You've Got Mail" achievement anymore. Treyarch mailed postcards to the Pawn Takes Pawn participants during Phase 3 of the easter egg. They do not send those out anymore as the easter egg has concluded, unfortunately. Basically, that postcard contained a redeem code that you could enter to get the "You've Got Mail" achievement. Please check Phase 3 of our guide.
