I'm remembering a film where a kidded played a text adventure game. I want
to say the movie was Big or some other movie with Tom Hanks but I can't be
sure. I remember the game was a text adventure with graphics at the top
and the kid was trying to kill the ice wizard or ice something. In my head
the game has CGA grahpics - two or three colors. By the end of the film he
figures it out and was able to finish the game. Does this game actually
exist or was it made up for Hollywood? If it does exist, any idea what
it's called?

I remember it. I'm totally sure the movie was Big. No idea about the IF,
though.

No, it was not _The Wizard and the Princess_. It was not a real game
at all.
