Personal review
As this is the earliest possible game that can be emulated on a modern system, it is the earliest I have tried. (Actually NIM on the NIMROD computer is even earlier but who wants to download the BeOS just for that) Since this was the only computer game of its time, I would have to say it was a very average experience.
