Romp Home with these 21 Peerless ASCII Games
The purpose of this article is to identify our favourite ASCII based games. There are no fancy graphics here, just great gameplay coupled with the urge of always having just one more play.

  • mcrypt
    mcrypt is a replacement of the old unix crypt(1) under the GNU General Public License. Unix Crypt(1) was a popular(?) file encryption program in unix boxes. It was based on the enigma encryption algorithm but it was considerable trivialized. Mcrypt uses some modern block encryption algorithms. It also has a compatibility mode with unix crypt and with solaris des(1). It supports several block algorithms like Blowfish, Twofish, DES, 3DES, 3-WAY, SAFER-SK64/128, SAFER+, LOKI97, GOST, RC2, RC6, IDEA and CAST-128/256. Read more
