Beast is a simple ASCII-based game which doesn't have much of a story, but then it doesn't really need one. Your goal is to kill each of the "beasts" on each level (big letter "H"s). However, instead of weapons, you need to use the level itself to kill them, by trapping them between the pushable walls. Since it was made in 1984 it's graphics and sounds are extremely rudimentary, but its gameplay is fairly unique although it too is pretty simple. Not bad for a 19k file! (This game was mentioned in the book "The Video Game Explosion: A History from PONG to Playstation and Beyond" by Mark J. P. Wolf.)
