Lock 'N' Chase    Dungeon Dwellers Design,  1995
Rating: 2 1/2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
As you might expect from the name, this is a clone of the Atari 2600 game Lock 'N' Chase. (I recall playing it on the Intellivision personally.) It's a faithful rendition of the Atari 2600 game, with almost identical graphics and gameplay. It plays similar to Pac-Man, where the goal is to collect all the gold bars in the maze and avoid enemies. Rather than power pills, you can put up temporary barriers to block the enemies. (This is perhaps the smallest game on the site, only 4kb compiled!)

Mario Brothers VGA    Dave Sharpless,  1990

Rating: 2 1/2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
A mostly faithful version of the original Mario Bros arcade game. This version includes VGA graphics (not very pretty graphics, though) as well as two player gameplay. (The original was made by Nintendo, who had nothing to do with this copycat version.)

Micropede    Robert B. Easter,  1994
Rating: 3 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Micropede is a clone of the classic Centipede (or Millipede) arcade games. It is a fast moving arcade game where the goal is to eliminate the "micropede" without contacting any of the many obstacles in the game. While not as popular or entertaining as games like Pacman or Galaga, this style of game was very popular in arcades at the time of its original release. (Note: A mouse is required for this game.)

MS Pac PC    JROK,  1996

Rating: 4 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
It's just like Pac-Man, but it's MS Pac-Man! What's the difference? Well, there's a bow on her ..... Okay, I'd better stop that, or else a bunch of MS Pac-Man fanatics will come over to my house and beat me up. This game is a lot the same as the classic Pac-Man game, but with some variations, like a couple of different maze layouts and smarter ghosts. It's an almost perfect conversion, so if you liked the arcade, get this!

MyMan    Benjamin Sittler,  2000
Rating: 2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Text-mode Pacman. That pretty much sums up MyMan. The game is relatively faithful to the classic arcade game, except that it uses text graphics as rough approximations of the famous Pacman characters (ex. "C" for Pacman (or "MyMan") and "A"s for the ghosts). It plays decently, though it's more of a novelty than a game you'd want to play often, since there are other more impressive Pacman-style games available.

Pac-Bar    Rhadames Carmona,  1995

Rating: 3 1/2 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
A neat variant of the classic Pac-Man game. This version includes a couple of new gameplay elements, big levels and good EGA graphics. It seems quite challenging (at least for me!), although you DO receive more than the usual 3 lives.

Pac-Gal    Al J. Jiménez,  1982
Rating: 2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Basic Pacman-style game done with only ASCII graphics (it was made in 1982 after all). Not much to say, will be useful for REALLY old computers or for nostalga only. The # you're asked to enter at the beginning of the game relates to speed: 0=fastest, 30000=slowest ... however you'll still probably have to use either DOSBox or a slowdown program lik MoSlo (check the Essential Utilities for those).

Pac PC    JROK,  1997

Rating: 5 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
He's a classic symbol (an icon, if you will) for video gaming ... and now you can play an almost arcade perfect version of the Pac-Man arcade game on your computer! Pac PC is a simply terrific clone of the classic arcade game, including nearly identical sounds, graphics, and gameplay! Very impressive indeed ... download it to relive some old memories!

Paratrooper    Greg Kuperberg,  1982
Rating: 2 1/2 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
This action game is somewhat similar to Missile Command, but with its own unique feel. This game was mostly popular on non-PC (Apple) computers. This PC version is CGA-based (so its graphics look rather poor) and it is QUITE hard. So if you're looking for a challenge, this could be it. (NOTE: This game will probably run fast on your modern computer so you will probably need to use DOSBox or Moslo to play it; both are available on the Essential Utilities page.)

PC*Bert    JROK,  1997
Rating: 4 1/2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Like Q*Bert? Then you'll probably also enjoy PC*Bert, a clone of the classic QBert arcade game. Avoid enemies like Slick and Coily as you hop from square to square. This game features graphics and sound effects that are true to the arcade, and the intuitive controls make moving PC*Bert (Q*Bert?) around easy. The game also offers a 2-player mode. Not much to complain about here, an excellent arcade conversion.

Retro Games    Darren Johnson,  1998

Rating: 3 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
If you'e looking for a collection of classic games, this could be it. This package doesn't feature the greatest graphics or sound, but it DOES include many different games to play, such as several variations of Pong, racing games, a maze game, tic-tac-toe, etc. Most require two players as there is no computer opponent available.

Revenge of Froggie    PLBM Games,  1990

Rating: 3 1/2 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
Obviously a version of the classic Frogger game ... this one is pretty good. It has fairly good graphics, some SB effects and that classic Frogger gameplay. :) Also includes 'extended mode', however, this mode isn't much different than the 'classic' mode.

Robotron 2084   Sarwan Narine,  1994
Rating: 3 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
Robotron was the first arcade game to feature the dual-stick control scheme, allowing the player to move and shoot in two different directions simultaneously. This DOS version of the classic video game, which is essentially an unlicensed clone, copies the look and feel of the original arcade game fairly well. The classic sound effects and graphics are copied well, and the game plays quite smoothly. The main weakness of the game is that only five waves are included and the game must be registered (likely an impossibility now) to be able to play all the waves.

Rollo and the Brush Bros    Windmill Software,  1995
Rating: 2 1/2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Rollo and the Brush Bros is a remake of the arcade/atari2600 game "Amidar", which is kinda like Pac-Man meets Qix. The object of the game is to paint around the board with your roller to try to draw boxes while avoiding the enemy paint brushes. While the graphics are CGA-ugly and the sounds are quite annoying PC speaker fare, the game itself is no doubt a classic that many will probably enjoy playing (briefly) if only to relive their memories of playing it many years ago. (Note: This game will run about 100x too fast on modern PCs, use DOSBox or another slowdown utility; get 'em from the Essential Utilities page.)

Roxx    PLBM Games,  1995
Rating: 3 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
Roxx is a decent Asteroids clone. You have several control options: keyboard, mouse or joystick. The graphics are not spectacular but they do the job, with some good particle effects when you blow up an asteroid or die. There aren't a lot of options or additional features but the game does play quite well.

Scavenger    Dave Ashley,  1997
Rating: 3 stars  Full version  [ Screenshot ]
Scavenger is a Lode Runner / Jumpman clone which features slick presentation (256 color graphics and smooth animations) but not a lot of features, gameplay-wise. The object is to run around the levels and collect all of the items and then reach the exit. You can dig holes to trap enemies. It does include a built-in level editor and graphics editor, so if you enjoy making your own levels you might want to check it out. (Note: This is the full version, the author released it on his own website. Use the SETUP program to remap the keys; by default the numeric keypad is used.)

SDI2040    East Wing Software,  1991
Rating: 2 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
SDI2040 is a Space Invaders clone. It doesn't add many new features. There are some subtle differences, like the fact that the enemy ships are smaller than usual so they are a bit trickier to hit. The game plays decently, and includes functional graphics and sound effects, but nothing particularly exciting. The controls may take some getting used to, since your ship will continue to move in one direction unless you hit the down key or move the opposite way.

Sopwith    David L Clark,  1986

Rating: 2 1/2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
A true classic! :) Despite its CGA 4-color graphics, Sopwith is a game that many of you have probably played at one time or another. In this game you fly your plane around a landscape, and use your guns and bombs to blow up targets on the ground and in the air. It's still good fun if you look past the dated graphics/sounds! (Note: This version is slightly modified from the original by the original author of the game so that it will work with modern PCs!)

Spacewar    B Seiler (DOS version),  19??
Rating: 2 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
Do you like old games? What about the OLDEST game? Spacewar is generally credited with being the first video game, even before Pong. It was originally created in the 1960's at MIT. This DOS version was created much later, and recreates the original with some modifications. The game is essentially a 1-on-1 fight between two spaceships (2-players on one keyboard or you vs the computer). The graphics and so on are of course very primitive, but download this anyways to experience part of video games history.

Star Fortress    PLBM Games,  2000

Rating: 4 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
Basically a remake of the classic 80's arcade game Star Castle, this is a simplistic space shooting game that is quite fun to play. It's similar in some respects to Asteroids, but here your destruction target is a single ship in the middle of the screen that fires back on you. Try to beat your highest scores!

STYX    Windmill Software,  1983
Rating: 3 1/2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Styx was released by Windmill Software in 1983. It is a decent clone of the arcade game Qix (also sometimes known as "Kix"). This is actually a "remastered" version of the game that has been altered to work a bit better on modern computers. Also the game was originally released bootable floppy only game, but this version works like a normal DOS game. (As usual with really old games, run with DOSBox, otherwise it'll probably run too fast in Windows or not work at all.)

Text Missile Command    PLBM Games,  1998

Rating: 3 1/2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
If you are using an older computer and looking for games to play, Text Missile Command is a good choice! Not surprisingly, this is a text-mode version of the classic Missile Command game. It plays very well, and will probably work on almost any PC system. Note that the game plays best with a mouse but you can also use the keyboard.

TRON    Keith Fordham,  1992
Rating: 2 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
TRON is an unofficial unlicensed version of the classic TRON light-cycles game. The object is to pilot your line around the screen, avoiding running into your opponent's line or the other walls. Here you can play against the (dimwitted) computer or against a second player at the same keyboard. The graphics are very basic, but there are some customizable options you can set.

Vectoroids    Minimal Enjoyment Games,  2001

Rating: 3 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Vectoroids is a simplistic recreation of the classic vector-based Asteroids arcade game. ("Vector" based games used lines instead of sprites in order to create primitive 3D effects.) It improves very little over the original game but it could still be fun to play for fans of the original.
