3D Monster Maze is regarded as the earliest horror game created for computers. The game was first played on the Sinclair ZX81 in 1981. The player is put in a maze with only one exit and a hostile T-Rex dinosaur. From a first-person perspective, you, as the player, must escape without being eaten. Happy Halloween!
3D Monster Chase for the Amstrad PC released in 1983 can be played online via the archive.org Mame emulator (thanks to Romik Software).
