CAVEZ of PHEAR is an arcade-style game that runs inside a terminal. The gameplay is similar to Boulder Dash — actually, it is a Boulder Dash clone — where you must collect all diamonds from a maze while avoiding a squishy demise if excavating beneath boulders.
The best part? The game is made entirely in ASCII!
The game is available in the Ubuntu repository. Simply install cavezofphear from the command line or from Synaptic. To run it, expand your terminal window to at least 80×25, and then enter phear.
This is a fun distraction that is easy to get into, and the ASCII art makes it all the more attractive.
