Help me find this old game!

I remember playing a game quite a few years ago (maybe 15 or so) on my first PC and I wanted to find it and see if it was really as awesome as I remember. My googlefu has failed me so I now turn to you, the wise hive, to help me find it. Here are the things I remember.

- The game had ascii graphics, and I think that I played it through DOS.
- The game consisted of multiple 'levels' which were large maps; the maps had terrain like trees, mountains, etc., that could be destroyed if shot by the character
- The character was a single space and I *think* it may have been the ascii extended character for the letter Phi. It looked roughly like this: |O|
- You could move the character with one set of controls, WASD maybe, and fire the gun in another direction with the number pad
- I think the goal was to clear all the enemies from the level

Any insight would be greatly appreciated

Could it be ZZT?

Response by poster: At first I thought it may have been a ZZT/Megazeux game but I'm pretty sure it was a standalone title - very similar gameplay though.

Best answer: The Islands of Danger?
