Actually no, what he's playing is Adventure. It was created by Roberta Williams I believe, who later went on to found Sierra Online, the company that made the King's Quest series. Roberta's text adventures were, shall we say, "inferior in every way" to Infocom's (Zork's company). They were:

1. Poorly written, the text was very amateurish. By contrast, Zork was as well written as a decent fantasy book.
2. Hard to play, since you could noly use two-word sentences (verb noun). By contrast, Zork had a much better parser that understood full sentences, and even compund sentences, quite well. You could type "move north and get the crystal", and it would correctly identify two commands: first move north; then get the crystal. If there was more than noe crystal, it would even ask you which crystal you wanted to pick up.
3. Unforgiving, it was practically a trial-and-error to find the many "surprise" ways you could die so you could remember not to do that again. Zork was also somewhat unforgiving, but at least there was some warning buried in the text that something might be dangerous...you just had to pay attention.

I used to make my own text adventures on my Apple ][ back in high school. They had a simple verb-noun parser like Sierra's games, but I styled the writing, commands, and interface after Infocom's.

For the record, Zork was originally named "Dungeon" and was on the VAX mainframe. When Infocom was formed, it was renamed to Zork and released on the Apple. The C64 version came later, eventually it was ported to just about every platform available at the time.

Atlas was my favorite MUD back in the day. Only had like 15 people on at a time. But it was always good times.
