Isn't this the one where there's text at the bottom of the screen and some rudimentary pictures above it? I think I played it on an old Apple or something. Some kid was playing it in a Tom Hanks movie or something I think.

The actual title is "Colossal Cave" aka "Adventure." I remember playing it all the time on my school's Apple ][. No pictures (in the original version anyway).

Here's a real good webpage about it:
