Beneath Apple Manor is one of the earliest examples of what now is usually termed a "roguelike" game. It's a primitive RPG (originally released on the Apple II platform in 1978!) where you are on a quest to find the Golden Apple while exploring randomly generated dungeons; and only dungeons, there are no other locations. Although there is no character creation per se, you do get to customize the difficulty of the dungeons and a few other options when you start the game. (I recommend NOT accepting the "standard game" and choosing an easier difficulty if you want to survive!) Since it's such an early game it lacks many of the features that later games have, but it's an amazing early example of a game with randomly generated levels. Note: Choose "R" (RGB) for graphics mode when playing in DOSBox. (Author Don Worth has released the game for free on his website.)
