Back in November, it was announced that the Internet Archive was making 900 classic coin-op arcade games available on their site for free. Now, they’re doing it again. The Verge reported today You can play nearly 2,400 classic MS-DOS games for free right now. According to their post, the games run in your browser and include:
That includes the likes of id Software’s Commander Keen, the apocalyptic RPG Wasteland, the original Prince of Persia, early FPS games like Wolfenstein 3D, and many more. There’s even Mario Teaches Typing.
They report the whole thing is in beta so it may be buggy and there are no instructions for each game. Call it an added layer of challenge in playing these old favorites! Personally, I’m looking forward to revisiting Caveman Ugh-lympics, Harpoon, and Dragonlance: Champions of Krynn! Use this link to get to the archive.
