Play games like Tetris or Pong within the Terminal

Can you remember the good old 70’s games like Pong, Tetris or Snake? You can still play this good old stuff. With every OS X installation comes emacs (Extensible, customizable, self-documenting real-time display editor). An easter egg of emacs lets you play this good old games at the command line.

Launch Terminal.app from the Spotlight search or go to /Applications/Utilities/

For example if you want to play Tetris you need the following command:

emacs -q –no-splash -f tetris

To play Tetris use the arrow keys and the spacebar. For a complete list of possible games to play use the following command:

ls /usr/share/emacs/22.1/lisp/play/

Have fun with the good old stuff.
