This simple text mode action game with simple but enjoyable Gauntlet-like gameplay. You're in a maze, and you need to find and destroy the enemy generators, which spit out ASCII smiley-faced enemies that attack you. Not too intense of a game, but it has some interesting origins: It was apparently commissioned by Novell to test the networking capabilities of early LANs. So this game from 1982 has networked multiplayer capabilities, but don't ask me how to get it to work!
