Notable for at least two things: one, it was an attempt to "graphicalize" a text adventure; that is, the author wanted to translate Colossal Cave to a graphical interface. And two, apparently it is the first game containing an Easter Egg (or at least, the first to popularize this notion.)

Yars' Revenge

Balanced gameplay.
