Pure Text Adventures For The Apple II

Does anyone know a good list of pure text adventures for the Apple II? The vast amount of adventure games released for this pc seem to be split text and graphics, a format unliked by myself. CASA appears to have a few.

Most of the Infocom titles are text only. The Eamon series has a huge number of games (over 270): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eamon_(video_game) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Eamon_adventures
Eamon games have never stirred my blood. I should have been more specific; I really meant games solely released for the Apple II. Rather like the Atari 400 / 800 there appears to be a paucity of these. Even Cranston Manor had to have graphics added for the Apple II released version.

I suppose the Atari's superior graphics and smaller sales compared to say, the Spectrum and BBC B would possibly answer my own question (ducks under pillow to avoid cyber protestations).

I can suggest Windmere Estate as one exception to the Apple II wasteland.

Thanks for your reply.
Are you wanting physical disks or just disk images? If you want physical disks eBay would be your best bet. If you want disk images there are several Apple II sites around the web. Here's 32MB disk image that has 35 Infocom games. They were all simply text afventures: https://archive.org/details/PitchDark
