Marketed by IBM as an adventure game Zyll is a text-based RPG with randomized elements where the object is to retrieve the "Black Orb". After choosing your class (warrior/thief/wizard) your adventure begins, and you are given various action options as you proceed. By modern standards it's pretty basic, but at the time it was considered innovative. One neat thing is that it supports two player gameplay. Note that because it was designed for old XT-style keyboards, it uses the F1-F8 keys for all/most commands. (See a diagram of the layout of the function keys. They correspond to the 8 options at the top of the screen.)
