Infocom produced versions of atleast 2 of their games for the Plus/4:
Cutthroats and Suspect. There might have been others. These I can
verify. Both games are on disks which were for both Plus/4 and C64.
The C-16 didn't have enough memory to run the Infocom games. I haven't
seen any mention of the Plus/4 in any Infocom catalog. Strange.
