The first adventure game is a text game for educational purposes called The Oregon Trail, distributed in 1971 for schools and universities and released commercially on Apple 2 in 1978. Other cult games have marked generations of players by their innovations and their fantastic worlds to explore. Prince of Persia (1989) is one of the first platform games, Myst (1991) is one of the first point and click/exploration game to become cult. Later platformer games such as Sonic The Hedgehog will bring their stones to the vast edifice of video games. All the free adventure games available on Snokido have been inspired by this rich video game history that established the codes of modern games.
