3-Demon    John D Price & PC Research Inc,  1983
Rating: 3 1/2 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
3-Demon is probably the strangest Pac-Man game you'll ever play. It is played in a first-person perspective, that is, in "3D". How does this work, you may be asking? Well it's kind of difficult to figure out where you're going, and where the ghosts are. Luckily there's sort of a radar at the bottom that tells you how close the ghosts are. Overall it's poor graphics and dated sounds don't detract much from the game, so it's probably unique enough to be worth checking out.

ABM    Anonymous,  1990
Rating: 2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
This Missile Command clone is pretty barebones. You use your mouse to control the crosshairs, and the left & right mouse buttons to fire from your left and right canons to destroy oncoming missiles. Instead of protecting many cities, you are protecting just one in the center of the screen. Passable EGA graphics and some sound effects, but nothing too exciting here. Not even a title screen or an author listed anywhere, but it does play decently enough for what's there.

Alleycat    Bill Williams,  1984

Rating: 3 1/2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Even though this is an extremely old game (1984!) and even though it features archaic 4-color CGA graphics, it still can be fun to play. AlleyCat has you playing an ... uh, alleycat. The object is to jump around an alley (and also inside the appartment building) trying to collect as many mice and other objects as possible while avoiding baddies like dogs, sweeping brooms (?) etc. It's neat, and besides the fact that it's a true PC gaming classic, it's amazing how much gameplay is crammed into a 32k zipfile!

Antarctic Adventure    Friends Software,  1995
Rating: 3 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Antarctic Adventure made appearances on many older video game systems, including the Colecovision, NES and MSX (among others) as well as arcades. This is a recompiled version of the MSX game that does not require a separate emulator to play. Therefore it plays exactly like the classic game. The object is to guide your penguin to its home, avoiding obstacles and collecting bonuses (flags and fish) along the way. Smooth but unimpressive graphics will remind you of the video games of yesteryear!

A-Pac    Eli Babila,  1999
Rating: 3 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Similar to the classic CD-Man, A-Pac attempts to update the classic Pac-Man game with new graphics, sound, etc. It does a decent job of recreating the Pac-Man gameplay you remember with enhanced visuals and audio. There are a few different level themes, and the whole package is generally well done, although there really is not a lot new here gameplay-wise. (Check the included A-PAC.DOC file for some humorous "FAQ's" from the game's author.)

CD-Man    Creative Dimensions,  1993

Rating: 4 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
One of the earliest (and most famous) attempts to modernize the classic Pacman game. This variant features wonderfully drawn EGA graphics, innovative gameplay elements (gates & keys) and it generally plays very well. Each stage has its own surprises! Note that even though the game allows you to adjust its speed, you will probably need a slowdown utility or DOSBox (check the Essential Utilities page) to make it run at a reasonable speed.

Centiped-em    CHAMP Games,  1997
Rating: 4 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
A fantastic remake of the classic arcade game Centipede, "Centiped-Em" is nearly perfect. It offers the same graphics and gameplay you remember, plus additional options, graphics and control methods to allow you to play this game however you want. A great remake from CHAMP who also created other near-perfect remakes such as CHAMP Kong (below) and Pac-Em. (The full version of this game has been released for free by its author.)

CHAMP Kong    CHAMProgramming,  1996

Rating: 4 1/2 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
An excellent conversion of the old arcade classic. It features great graphics, sweet SB sound (taken directly from the arcade!) and lots of other nice, professional touches. Overall ... it's great! Get it! :)

Chompsters    Pixel Creations,  1998

Rating: 4 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot unavailable ]
A very fun Pacman type game that expands on the original Pacman idea by adding different characters (Pacmen?) to play, as well as having varied, large levels and ghosts with individual personalities that talk to you between levels. Your Pacman can also jump and use new special items. It's all very well done, and it's fun to play, as well. (Note: Although I was unable to get a screenshot of this game, it does look VERY good. ^_^)

Classic Jumpman    Ingenieurbüro FRANKE,  1999

Rating: 3 1/2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Classic Jumpman is a remake of the classic Jumpman game. (Woah! Shocking, isn't it? Isn't it a good thing I'm writing such insightful comments on these games?) Anyways, this remakes captures almost exactly the look/feel/sounds etc of the original PC game, and should run on most modern computers. Of course, I can't say for sure whether your particular Windows setup will like this game or not. ;)

Clone Invaders    Gary Quiring,  1999

Rating: 3 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
A fairly good (but no-frills) rendition of the classic Space Invaders game. There isn't much new here, but you're pretty much guaranteed it will work with any PC you've got laying around your house, so this would be a good game to try on the 8086 clunker. ;) It's not bad overall but it is very basic.

Cosmo Chicken    Steven H Don,  1995
Rating: 2 1/2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Remember that "Astro Chicken" mini game in Sierra's Space Quest 3? Cosmo Chicken is a lot like that ... it even uses extremely similar graphics. If you've never played Space Quest 3, Cosmo Chicken is similar to Lunar Lander. The object is to carefully land your chicken on the landing pad, watching out for dogs, etc. A well made fun game but not likely one you'd play for very long. (NOTE TO ALL! No, I cannot legally add Space Quest or any other Sierra games to this site, since they are still copyrighted by Sierra. Sorry!)

David's Kong    Author Unknown,  1984
Rating: 2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
David's Kong is a classic knock-off of the even more classic game Donkey Kong. Here the basic object is the same, rescue the maiden in distress from the top of the screen while avoiding oil barrels and fireballs. Run and jump along the platforms to avoid them. Strangely the F1 key is used to jump. After rescuing the girl, the level changes a bit and you have to run back down. No author info is avialable; clearly its CGA four-color graphics and primitive PC speaker sound effects will be nostalgic for people who played this many years ago!

Digger    Andrew Jenner,  1999

Rating: 4 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Quite similar to the classic games DigDug and Mr.Do, this game gained some sort of PC gaming cult status. I had a couple of requests for this one since starting the site, so I figured I'd better add it. It plays well, offers lots of command line options, and you can TURN OFF THE MUSIC! (It's not that bad for PC speaker music, but after playing games and listening to MODs (and ITs, and S3Ms) for so long, I've grown rather tired of the "Popcorn" song.)

Donkey    Bill Gates and Neil Konzen,  1981
Rating: 2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Donkey (originally DONKEY.BAS) was a game included the original IBM PC. Thus it is, in a sense, the original DOS game. It is not notable for its gameplay (pressing left or right) or graphics (terrible) but rather because it was co-developed by Bill Gates himself as an early test of the IBM PC's graphical capabilities. (The verison available for download here is a compiled executable version of the original DONKEY.BAS game.)

EGA Roids    Designer Software,  1986

Rating: 3 1/2 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
A pretty good conversion of the classic game 'Asteroids'. You won't find any bells & whistles here, but it does present solid gameplay and smooth flowing graphics. The only real problem is that the keys take a bit of getting used to ... using the arrow keys would've been much easier! If you can get used to the odd key placement, you'll probably like it.

Fowl Play    MOPS Computer Systems, Inc,  1983
Rating: 2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Frogger. That's pretty much all you need to know about this game. Okay, I'll tell you a little more. This 1983 game has CGA 4-color graphics and is quite similar to the classic Frogger game but the levels have slightly different layouts. (Watch out for the train ...) It plays fine, although you'll need to slow it down to run it on modern computers. (In DOSBox I need to manually set cycles to around 500 to get it to play at a decent speed.)

Gobman    Filipe Mateus,  1994

Rating: 3 1/2 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
Gobman is one of many Pacman clones that is available on the DOS platform. Gobman features many different game board layouts (unlike the original Pacman game which only has one layout). There are also new items that you can pickup to help you collect the dots and avoid the ghosts. The difficultly level in this game is not as intense as in some other Pacman clones I've played, and it generally plays very smoothly.

Invaders 1978    James Eibisch,  1996

Rating: 3 1/2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Looking for a space invaders clone? This one is pretty good. It takes the authentic, "no-frills" route, and does a pretty good job. It isn't pretty to look at, but it does play well, and has some SB sound effects as well.

Kerboom!    PLBM Games,  1998

Rating: 3 stars  Shareware  [ Screenshot ]
Not surprisingly, a clone of the classic 'Kaboom' game, made popular on the Atari 2600. Since I've only played the old Kaboom game briefly (emulated, of course) it's hard to say how faithful this version is. However, it's fairly enjoyable, since it features updated VGA graphics and SB sound effects. There's a nice difficulty curve as well ... it starts off slow, but speeds up quickly.

Kix    Edward Mueller,  1993

Rating: 3 1/2 stars  Freeware  [ Screenshot ]
Fans of the classic QIX arcade/console/computer game will be instantly at home here. This is basically a clone of that game. It's very well made, and even though it's old it runs at the normal speed even on a very fast P3 or K7 system. Poor graphics and sounds can't mask great gameplay! (Hmmm, that could be the DOS games motto.) The object of the game is to close off sections of the playing field while avoiding a spinning ... uh, "thing", and two sparks. It's better than I make it sound. ;)
