Games with boss key

Group Description

Games which provide a keyboard shortcut (or menu option), which displays a screenshot or small utility mimicking a business-related program or operating system, in order to hide player's activity (playing the game) from their real life boss / parent / teacher / spouse. Sometimes called a panic button.

Made obsolete by multitasking operating systems, in which the player may simply minimize game window or switch to another application.

Using the boss key in Tetris (1987).
