The legend of Zork continues with an exciting new style of interactive fiction. Dread times have befallen the Kingdom of Quendor. The wizards have mysteriously disappeared. The Enchanter's Guild Hall lies in ruins. Villages are abandoned, drunken men mutter strange tales, and vicious monsters haunt the streets and wastelands. Now it falls on you, a lowly peasant, to unravel the meaning behind these ominous events. Will you accept the challenge? Of course you will. For you're a hardy adventurer, ready to confront the most fearsome foe. And in Beyond Zork, you have an arsenal of new weapons and abilities at your disposal.
Infocom's 30th game was BEYOND ZORK by Brian Moriarty.

In this fantasy game your character had R.P.G. attributes and a small icon with your location and all available exits appeared at the top right of the screen.
Also, no matter what you typed, you could still see the description of your location at a window displayed on the top half of the screen.
