If it isn't, it should be. It pioneered one of my two favorite genres. (RTS)
Why do you park on a driveway and drive on a parkway?

It could be something like a more basic version of an old arcade game, perhaps.

OK. I'll google it. Or search for it on 1Up's gamefinder. Or both.

All 1up says is that it's an old PC game.

Seems to be a very old game made with Basic, the first one using reusable tiles, kind of an adventure rpg by the looks.

Akalabeth was Richard Garriott's (Lord British) first computer game. Heh, if you had trouble with that one then you better try to find some good video game history web sites because there are a lot more where that came from!
