    Steps to play hidden games in Mac OS X?

    I just wonder why Mac OS X doesn’t have the normal games as like hearts, solitaire in Windows but just came to know that some games are hidden in Mac OS X as like the normal games. So can you please tell me where to find those? How to play it?

    Re: Steps to play hidden games in Mac OS X?

    It is true that some normal games like snake, dunnet etc are available in Mac OS X and it is more likely in all the Linux and Unix based systems. So as the Mac OS is based on Unix we can see those games in Mac too. Now to check out these games or maybe to get a hands on them you can just go through the below steps as given,

    STEP 1: Now to see the list of games which are available in your Mac just open the terminal with administrator privilege.
    STEP 2: Type the command “ls /usr/share/emacs/21.2/lisp/play” and press Enter.
    STEP 3: Now you can see the list of games which are there in your Mac.. yea hidden..
    STEP 4: Now to play the games just open the terminal and go into the Applications/Utilities folder and type emacs and press Enter.
    STEP 5: Now in the emacs press Esc then x to get to the prompt. Now you can type any of the game which you saw in the list as like snake, doctor, life, dunnet, zone etc.

    Once you type in the game name and press Enter you can start playing the game. If you are still having some issues to get it then just drop in your query here to get it fixed as soon as possible.
