tribute to text-mode games

Christmas Carols

Author: Bill Pogue



I know this isn’t exactly a game, but what the heck, it’s fun, it’s text-mode, and I like it!

Christmas Carols is a little sleeper that does nothing except play carols on your PC speaker while displaying an ASCII-decorated Christmas tree. You have the option of choosing from a list of 22 different songs, or better yet, just let the computer cycle through the entire album in a sort of musical screen saver motif. The carols are surprisingly affecting, and the tree is the most adorable thing since the Charlie Brown Christmas Special.
