This is not so much a game as it is a tech demo, but what a tech demo it was back in 1990. Future id Software superstar John Carmack created a way to have smooth scrolling EGA graphics, which was a brand new thing back then. Together with Tom Hall they put together a quick demo to showcase the new technology which was dubbed "Dangerous Dave in Copyright Infringement". See this article by John Romero about the game for more information about the game's development. (Or the great book Masters of Doom about the history of id Software.) It's not much fun as a GAME (there's only one "level", no enemies, the question mark blocks don't work ...) but it's still very neat to play as a piece of video game history, or even as a parody of sorts of the classic NES Mario games. (It also includes the TED level editor that Romero created.)
