Maze War or for short Maze is a networked multiplayer first person shooter game, and a contender for the first such game ever created (together with Spasim, a networked 3D space combat). Initially programmed for an Imlac PDS-1 mainframe, linked together in an ethernet, it was later playable over ARPANET, hosted on a PDP-10 mainframe and ported to Xerox Altos.
