    In this thread you can discuss old DOS games and talk about the games in the DOS Game Reviews thread.
    All posts made there have been moved here so it will be easier to browse through the games in the thread.

    On DOSBox you mean? They should work, although C&C, RA and Theme Hospital have windows versions, so you might want to play those. Also, since they're larger games, you might get some lag under DOXBox.

    Nice list. I've played a lot of those games ans some were really good ones. Jill of the Jungle, Jetpack, Supaplex, Commander Keen, Alien Carnage, Bio Menace, Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure, Duke nukem 1 and 2, Hocus Pocus, Jazz Jackrabbit, Monster Bash, Secret Agent, Crystal Caves, Raptor: Call of the Shadows, Electro Man, Rescue Rover, etc...
    I particularly liked the Apogee games any my first PC game favorite was Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold.

    Prince of Persia (1990)

    [​IMG]

    Prince of Persia is an action-adventure video game series created by Jordan Mechner. Through the various titles, the series has had a variety of different developers and publishers. Although originally a side-scrolling platforming game, the series evolved into an action-adventure 3D environment. The series was rebooted with Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, developed and published by Ubisoft. The game was then part of a trilogy, called The Sands of Time Trilogy, in which all games have a time-traveling gameplay element. The series will be rebooted again with the 2008 game, Prince of Persia.

    This is my all time favourite game, I used to play it everyday.
    If you guys used to play it, then you must download it and play again.

    Have fun!

    Thanks StormX. I'll try it later, It'd be good to know where the series of games all came from. I have the latest trilogy of games and really enjoyed Sands of Time.

    I'm trying to find Clue Master Detective for my Commodore 64 emulator. All I can find is a tape image and I want a disk image. If anybody knows of a site could you please put a link in a PM?

    Woah, Hocus Pocus... I remember playing the shareware version of this game. Thanks for this!

    btw, the link to this thread in the DOS games thread is corrupt. Can you fix that plz? There's a tag inside the url for some reason.
