Those other games in emacs
Authored by: Anonymous on Jul 21, '01 05:40:40AM

To see a list of the other games, that do run in emacs:

ls /usr/share/emacs/20.7/lisp/play/

To run them:

1. Type emacs at the command line.
2. Type meta-x
Of course, Macs don't have meta keys. Use option-x. You should see "M-x" appear at the bottom of the screen. If you don't, try escape then x instead.
3. Type in the name of the game and hit return.

To get help for the game, type control-h then m.

Unfortunately, the help can be pretty unhelpful. Try tetris at least though, you can move left and right with the arrow keys, rotate with up and down, and drop with the space bar.
