All Macs come pre-installed with Emacs — a highly customisable text-editor mostly known for being an interpreter for Emacs Lisp (programming language). What is lesser known about is that Emacs also has a number of games that can be played right from the terminal with just a line of command!
To find available games
Use the following key combination.
Command + Shift + G
Paste the following path in the window and hit go.
This will take you to the list of games available to you.
How to play
Open Terminal. (You can also go to Shell -> New Window -> Homebrew for a better background)
Type the below command in terminal and hit enter.
Now, use the following combination to issue commands to emacs. You’ll see M-x at the bottom of the window which implies you can now issue commands to emacs.
Esc + X
Type the name of the game, for example dunnet to run it. You can also try tetris.
