I'm surprised that nobody put in OS X's hidden Tetris and Text Adventure
To play OS X's hidden tetris, you:
1. Open the finder
2. Open Applications
3. Open Utilities
4. Open Terminal
5. type "emacs"; click enter
6. Press ESC + X at the same time
7. Type "tetris"
8. Play Tetris! Use the arrow keys to move and rotate the blocks, and press the space to make the blocks fall.
To play the Text adventure, you just type Just type "emacs -batch -l dunnet" (without quotes) into the terminal and it will bring up and old school text based game.
I think the OS X developer's were REALLY bored when they made it.
interesting that dunnet is a game included on emacs code ;D
Welcome to dunnet (2.01), by Ron Schnell (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Here is some useful information (read carefully because there are one
or more clues in here):
- If you have a key that can open a door, you do not need to explicitly
open it. You may just use 'in' or walk in the direction of the door.
- If you have a lamp, it is always lit.
- You will not get any points until you manage to get treasures to a certain
place. Simply finding the treasures is not good enough. There is more
than one way to get a treasure to the special place. It is also
important that the objects get to the special place *unharmed* and
*untarnished*. You can tell if you have successfully transported the
object by looking at your score, as it changes immediately. Note that
an object can become harmed even after you have received points for it.
If this happens, your score will decrease, and in many cases you can never
get credit for it again.
- You can save your game with the 'save' command, and use restore it
with the 'restore' command.
- There are no limits on lengths of object names.
- Directions are: north,south,east,west,northeast,southeast,northwest,
- These can be abbreviated: n,s,e,w,ne,se,nw,sw,u,d,in,out.
- If you go down a hole in the floor without an aid such as a ladder,
you probably won't be able to get back up the way you came, if at all.
- To run this game in batch mode (no emacs window), use:
emacs -batch -l dunnet
NOTE: This game *should* be run in batch mode!
