Abandonware DOS title

Remakes of old abandoned games: adventure

Games running on DOS date back to the XX century and, well, there’s no other way you can define them - they’re just dated. Graphics, user experience, and sounds vastly progressed over the years: Today’s games belong to an entirely different world.

Many of the old games that used to run on DOS have been recreated from scratch to varying degrees of faithfulness, whether by the hands of big gaming companies or indie developers. Some of these remakes are available as free games, while others can only be played online, and some are available for purchase.

Here’s a list of remakes and ported games for the benefit of nostalgic enthusiasts and new generations of gamers alike.


Adventure games focus on cracking enigmas and exploring and contemplating the game world in a narrative-driven scenario. In order to progress within the story arc, the player has to interact with different items, the environment itself, and other non-playing characters (NPC in short).
