Are you trying to recreate that experience and play games you did
play, or are you looking for games you can play now?

That's definitely missing some features (puzzles) from later versions.
I don't recall what does and doesn't backport from the VMS-era

If you are looking for games you _can_ play, a couple of years ago at
VCFe, I hacked one of the RT-11 Z-Machines to run on RSTS/E (it needed
one extra system call to do with memory allocation) so we could play
Zork, Planetfall, etc., on Dave McGuire's PDP-11/70.  If you wanted
that I could try to dig it up.  You just need a fistful of .Z3 files
to play, then.

I also used to have a number of RT-11 games when I was in front of a
PDP-11 every day.  I know I have them on an RL01 pack...
