Hidden Classic Games in your Mac.

Play Tetris, Pong, and Other Retro Games

The text editor emacs has a collection of games hidden inside, including Snake, Tetris, Pong, Solitaire, Towers of Hanoi, and more. To access these little easteregg jems, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  • Type ‘emacs’ at the command line, then hit Function+F10, then ‘t’, then ‘g’
  • Select the game from the list by using arrow keys or by hitting a key corresponding to the game, S for Solitaire, T for Tetris, t for Hanoi, s for Snake, etc

The controls take some getting used to, but the games are playable enough to pass the time. [ via OS X Daily ]
