In the beginning of the Tom Hanks movie Big Josh as a kid is playing a game where he types melt wizard or something in the parser. Was this a real game?

As a follow-up, an indie dev made a full game based on the limited clip from the movie. You can play/download that (imagined) version of the game here:
