Those of us lucky enough to have a computer back in the 90’s when the Windows version we were using was either DOS or Windows 95, for sure we remember those old games like Prehistorik 2 and Mario Teaches Typing and Wolfenstein 3D that have been stealing lots of our times getting stuck in front of those bulky horizontal machine with a small 14 inch monitor in front of us. And yeah, I still remember the keyboard having a plastic cover.
More than 10 years later, I somehow remembered those games and did a quick search on Google to see if they’re still around. And they are!
I managed to download several of them and here they are, for you to download:
- Prehistorik 2 (1017 downloads)
- Wolfenstein 3D (934 downloads)
- Prince of Persia (902 downloads)
- Mario Teaches Typing (943 downloads)
- Grand Prix Circuit - The Cycles (933 downloads)
The games can run well without any additional software, but you’ll get weird sounds as the sounds are generated not from your PC speaker, but from your PC buzzer!
So to get the games to run like they did back in the 90’s using your XP or Vista computer, you need to use a DOS emulator software. A good one is DOSBox. Go download DOSBox, and read its how to use guide.
And somehow after more than 10 years you get tired again with all those games, just google for some more of those old DOS games.
And lastly, of course, have fun!
