Computer Space

Computer Space was inspired by Spacewar! (1962), the first computerized video game. An emulation of Spacewar!, which uses the Java programming language to emulate the Digital Equipment Corporation PDP-1 computer (1960), is available from MIT, where the original Spacewar! was created. Because the PDP-1 emulation software is written in Java, the game can be played from within a window of a Java-compatible web browser without any additional software.
