Added the following games:
  • Construction Bob (in the Bouncing Factory)

  • Cube

  • Death Rally

  • Dungeon Crawl

  • Island Hopper

  • NRMaze

A nice mix of above-average classic games and virtual unknowns in a nice variety of genres, I think. Happy I still have more to add, so maybe in the next few days I'll add the rest of them. (If I still have electricity *crosses fingers*)

Anyways, download these by going to the Newest Additions page. Oh and if/when you spot errors please post here to let me know about 'em ... thanks! Congratulatory

The screenshots seem to be working okay for me ... please post your OS, web browser (including version) and any other apps you're running that could interfere with the web browsing (like popup/ad-blockers, download managers ...) If you're having a problem, it's likely that other people are as well, so I'd like to fix it if I can figure out where the problem lies Happy

PS. Changed the header Wink

Death Rally's pic is from registered version. Forbidding Snap a new, so people wouldn't send thee hate mail. (There are more pics too...)

I doubt people will pay that much attention to the pic for Death Rally. I couldn't get a screenshot of it on my comp, so I used one of the ones from MobyGames, I guess its from the reg'd version.

I may add Lure during the next update ... when I downloaded Lure I already had these six games queued up for adding.

Check-Mate: Try disabling any security programs first. I was having problems downloading until I found out temporarily turning off pop-up stopper did the trick.

No need to worry, if you turn off your popup stopper at dosgames.com you won't see any popups, 'cuz there aren't any. If you see popups at dosgames.com ... you need to download AdAware immediately Wink

i honestly think Spybot: Search and Destroy is better than AdAware. Spybot can be downloaded from www.download.com and is 100% free.

The best is a combination of the two. That way, even though it takes 2x as long, you can get the most spyware removed.
