Like electronic Nim, electronic OXO wasn't designed to be entertaining.
OXO was the first digital graphical game to run on a computer, and was rather simple to use — the player played against the computer, with output displayed on the computer's 35×16-pixel cathode ray tube. The source code was short, yet played a perfect game of noughts and crosses.
The game didn't have widespread popularity, though, mainly because the EDSAC was a computer unique to Cambridge.
This game provides examples of:
- Match Three Game: You have to line three naughts or crosses up.
- Ur Example: Depending on how you define a Video Game, this may be the first one ever.
