For System 6.x - Mac OS 9
Emulation
This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II, Mini vMac

The Zork Anthology includes Zork 1, 2, 3 and Planetfall.

Zork is a classic text adventure and Planetfall was one of the nicest text games. As far as available commercially, nope. In fact the Zork text games have been relased as "no-cost" shareware for Z-machine interpreters. One might consider playing these games using a Z-machine interpreter instead of the stand-alone implementations. Same game but better Mac dialogs and control.

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k

Like 'Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' (not included in this download), you don't need to configure a Mac emulator to play these games, because 'Zoom' does the job for you, too.
For Zoom, please refer to its homepage at http://www.logicalshift.co.uk/unix/zoom/

To get the games recognized by Zoom, please add the extension ".z5" (without quotes) to the Zork application name.

Can this be opened / played on an iiPad Pro?

The only I can see is Frotz on the AppStore

(Thank you, Daxeria, about the hint for Windows Frotz, seen below)

Is Zoom sort of like ScummVM for the Infocom games?

Absolutely, yes! Smile

Does anyone know a current Infocom interpreter for Windows, just for compatibility?
