DOS games – Retro Gaming article.

Found this great article on DOS retro gaming that’s well worth a read and highlights some real memorable games from yesteryear.

If I had to pick three favorites from those listed it would have to be -

Prince of Persia – I don’t think I’ll ever tire of this game. Especially on the IBM PC….and the Commodore Amiga….oh and the original Gameboy.

Loom – A cracking adventure game from Lucasart with a novel twist of having to play music notes on your keyboard to cast spells. (I could easily have picked The Secret of Monkey Island here but I play it so often that Loom makes a refreshing change.

Commander Keen – Remember this from my days working at IBM and couldn’t get enough of these early platform games from Id Software.
