It will play any level 9 game. In the archive I've included everything I could easily find from the IF Archive and Home of the Underdogs, as well as related help files.

Looks interesting. Which games are possible with this?

Some versions of the Level 9 games had graphics in addition to text, though I don't believe it was ever necessary for playing the game. This interpreter is supposed to support those graphics, though I haven't figured out either how to get it to work or how to find versions of the game with the graphics included. If anyone else knows how, post something here to let me know how!
