Games with the keyboard attribute can be played entirely by keyboard. How the keyboard was used varied from game to game — for some games typed commands or sentences were required (such as with adventure games); other games allowed the keyboard to be used to simulate a joystick when one wasn't available, such as by using the arrow keys as equivalents to moving a joystick.
