Using The Right Application
These great adventure games of our past can sometimes be a pain to play while trying to run on a modern day computer system. Programs have been designed to help alleviate these technical problems. Below you will find our list of programs that will help you run every game listed on our site.
DOSBox is a complex utility that simulates many functions of MS Dos. They use simple DOS commands, and a few commands of their own to allow you to install and run many old games on newer operating systems that were designed to perform inside of MS DOS.
