Awesome,, I kept thinking it was Star control related at first it was like SC's weird uncle.
I'll post an easy one, the only game both my parents played back in my Tandy Computer days.

Some kind of Boulder Dash?

If not Boulderdash itself, the only similar game I remember from around that time was called Rockman (on the C16, dunno if it was released on the Tandy).

The only 2-player Boulderdash game I remember was Skullduggery - but I think that was significantly later (had it on the Atari ST, but I guess it might have been released on the 8-bits previous to that?).

Digger   (to be fair:  my wife walked by and said, "That's the game I used to play on the Atari 800!"  So... she got it.)

I had Amiga module with this tune. ;-D And funny thing just happened - my wife heard it playing just now - and she asked "Where did I hear it before???". Your brother's Atari probably - I replied :D Is there anybody who doesn't know it? (laugh)

Here's another static screen with the interface removed. 



Another hint:

the surrounding interface was all text... including the description of this scene.

I didn't play text adventures back in the 80s as I did not speak English yet. So I'm clueless on this one.

The Pawn by Magnetic Scrolls.

Here's the next:

To keep things fresh and fun, the dialogue is not how it appears in the game at all, it was altered by me in an image editing program.
