Sorry, there is no web page.  But the games only require the VT11, and a
keyboard which is attached to the standard console input so any ASCII
sender is usable.  They don't use a light pen.

For more serious computing, there is also a terminal emulator compatible
a Datapoint 3300 which requires a DL11 to talk to a host.
