1) MIDI Maze introduced the concept of deathmatch combat to usual users.(first was in  Maze War 1973).
As in the 1980st year no home computer featured real networking support beside serial-cable connections between two computers, Midi Maze is using a trick to connect up to 16 players: as the Atari ST is having Midi-in and Midi-out connectors for keyboards and sound equipment, these were used to build up a ring-network. Computer 1 Midi-Out is connected to Computer 2 Midi-In, Computer 2 Midi-Out is connected to Computer 3 Midi-In and so forth with the last computer connecting again to Computer-1. This builds a very cheap network for more than two Atari ST computers.
2) First fast by today standarts gameplay (but only on small screen).
3) Plot - You are Smiley , your mission - defend your color in Midi sixteen notes and kill bas notes.
