So, apparently not Docker running on z/OS.

I'm mildly surprised.

Now I'm more confused as to why asm_amd64.s, something I assume is

I wonder if the copies of the games that @bmoshix is running were 
written for a mainframe or a PC (compatible).  The latter makes more 
sense with the asm_amd64.s and comments about installing these games on 
a PC.
