MIDI Maze (Atari ST) 1987
First first person shooter with visible "bullets", first color multiplayer first person shooter, first color deathmatch
Earliest english Magazine review - Computer and Video Games (1988)
1) MIDI Maze introduced the concept of deathmatch combat to usual users (first introduced in Maze War 1973).
While in the 1980s no home computer featured real networking support beside serial-cable connections between two computers, Midi Maze is using a trick to connect up to 16 players: as the Atari ST is having Midi-in and Midi-out connectors for keyboards and sound equipment, these were used to build up a ring-network. Computer 1 Midi-Out is connected to Computer 2 Midi-In, Computer 2 Midi-Out is connected to Computer 3 Midi-In and so forth with the last computer connecting again to Computer-1. This builds a very cheap network for more than two Atari ST computers.
2) First fast (by today standarts) gameplay in 3D game.
3) Plot:You are Smiley, your mission - defend your color in Midi sixteen notes and kill bas notes.
4) Emulated in: SainT
