Classic Games
DOS Games

Tetris, Wing Commander, SimCity... legendary games whos names still resonate. The early '90s was the golden age for DOS Computer Games, and now you can re-live the original experience all over again.

Here are some of the best games from that era, offering gaming experiences that you just don't find with the formulaized recent games. All have been pre-setup and configured to work on a DOS operating system PC utilizing once popular ISA hardware (both unfortunately no longer reasonably available in the commercial marketplace). In most cases, all you have to do is UnZip the archive and type "run" to start playing. Enjoy!

Note: If you have problems with sound, video, processor speed, etceteras, not matching your specific hardware configuration; a simple internal game settings selection or RUN.BAT tweek is usually all that is required (each games SETTINGS.TXT file lists the games currently configured settings).


Games offered here are either Freeware, or fall under the parameters of being DMCA exempt (program floppy disks, printed support material and specified ISA hardware are no longer available).
