Blockade is a maze arcade game released by Gremlin in 1976. Each player moves their character around leaving a solid line behind them, turning at 90 degree angles. To win you must last longer than your opponent before hitting something. First person to hit something loses. The game ended after one player chalked up six wins.

This type of game became popular later on as 'Snake' on cellphones.
