Worthy Opponent aims to provide just that, dispensing with the problems of computer AI and instead serving up a collection of a dozen low-bandwidth mini-games designed for competitive two-player challenge, some turn-based, some simultaneously, through direct computer connection via modem. Its ANSI textmode graphical display allows low latency through the internal terminal software (which also permits during-play chat and taunting) even on the relatively slow modems of its era, the late '80s.

The mini-games included in version 1.9 were:
  • SnakePit, a game in the Nibbles vein;
  • CornerStone;
  • Quinte (or, for those of you with poor imaginations, "Connect 5" on a 19x19 grid);
  • ArmyAnts;
  • Checkers, as per the board game classic;
  • Backgammon, a parlour staple;
  • MissileStrike;
  • LazerMaze;
  • and CannonBall Express;
Three additional games were added as of version 2.0:
  • CaveIn;
  • TreasureQuest;
  • and Miniature Golf.
