Beyond Zork: The Coconut of Quendor is a text-based adventure game developed and published by Infocom in 1987 for MS-DOS, Amiga, Apple II, Apple IIGS, Atari ST, Commodore 128, and Macintosh.
The game is a spin-off of the famous Zork series and is set in the same fantasy universe. It was one of the last titles of this series before Infocom closed.
Players take on the role of a nameless adventurer. They must explore the game's open world, solving puzzles and interacting with characters to uncover the mystery of the Coconut of Quendor. The game features a variety of locations to visit, including forests, mountains, and underground caves. A significant difference compared to Zork: The Great Underground Empire - and the other Zork games - is the introduction of RPG elements. In fact, the player must create a character, selecting six different stats: endurance, strength, dexterity, intelligence, compassion, and luck.
It also includes a magic system, non-player characters with which the player can interact, and a combat mechanic.
Beyond Zork was well-received by critics and is considered a classic game in the text-adventure genre.
