Description

Rescue on Fractalus! was a very early (if not the first) game making use of fractal landscape generation. The game has the player piloting a spacecraft across a procedurally-generated fractal landscape to rescue downed pilots. The graphics are very simple but effective — the silhouette of the fractal mountain range is displayed against the sky, and a black grid is overlaid on the mountain range for perspective.
