Viper is a very simple text-mode shmup from 1986. You face wave after wave of enemy ships, and you blast ’em while avoiding their shots. That’s pretty much it, but thankfully the author created some sweet-looking text-mode graphics for your ship and the enemy ships, each which are comprised of several characters. There are animations when your ship takes a hit, and then when it gets hit a second time and explodes. The enemy ships also have simple animations. It adds a lot to the game’s charm. Later waves get more difficult as you progress, and with only three lives, you may not get far!
