After releasing almost 900 classic, coin-operated arcade games late last year, the Internet Archive have released nearly 2,400 MS-DOS 90s video games online, free and playable in-browser… there goes the afternoon!
We’ve reached back into our teen brains and picked out a handful of our favourites.
Street Fighter II (1992)
Hadouken!!! Need we say more? Street Fighter & Super Street Fighter II are also there.
Play Street Fighter II
Disney’s Aladdin (1994)
If you have to play one Disney game it would have be Aladdin, but The Lion King is also worth a run.
Play Disney’s Aladdin
Lemmings 2: The Tribes (1993)
After countless hours watching (sometimes pushing) the original Lemmings fall to their death, we couldn’t wait for Lemmings 2 to come out.
Play Lemmings 2: The Tribes
Prince of Persia (1989)
Long before Jake Gyllenhaal pranced about in the sands of time, and before parkour was a thing, we bounced off walls and were leaping over pits in stunning 2D.
Play Prince of Persia.
Nothing to do with Young MC, Bust-A-Move featured Bub & Bob of Bubble Bobble fame in a proto-Bubble Witch Saga if you will.
Sim City (1989)
What can you say, Sim City, the game that launched an entire universe of pointless never-ending titles that continue to spawn to this day.
Play Sim City
The emulator is still in beta, we hit a few snags but for the most part they were all playable, you can view the entire collection of 90s video games online at the Internet Archive
