About 15 years ago, I ported a UNIX zcode engine to VAX-C 2.3(?). IIRC,
it was "pinfocom" - it would be a Z3 and *maybe* a Z5 interpreter. Back
then, we were still reverse-engineering the data format. By 1994, it
was all laid bare and there were plenty of interpreters in C to chose

If you have C skills, you might consider a fresh port from a more
modern zcode runtime for UNIX. Fancier game files might need a port
of the curses library or similar for screen formatting, though.
