I had most of them back when they first came out and recall spending a lot of time playing them. I still have them all around here somewhere and if I want to I could start up an Amiga 2000 that I still have around..... 
I think I always found them on sale but if I recall right they were around $30 each. I saw that ap for IOS and will download it and play around with Zork, May get all of them and as mentioned $10 for all of them is quite a bargain.
