A suburban maze of twisty little passages

As the plane came in to land at DFW, I looked down at twisty suburban roads. A phrase from a computer game from 30 years earlier popped into my head.

"You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike."
--Colossal Cave Adventure (also said in Zork)

Trivia: Sometime around 1983, I played Adventure on the mainframe at JM Petroleum in Dallas.
