Abandonware DOS title

Classic Windows games

At the end of the DOS era, PCs started mounting the latest Operative Systems from Microsoft. Starting from version 3.1 Windows spread everywere and more and more software houses began to produce games for Windows.
The first games for Windows 3.1 weren't very popular; there were solitaire card games, puzzle games and little else. With the release of Windows 95 and 98 first and Windows XP later, the popular Microsoft O.S. became central to the development of mainstream games like Age of Empires or the Civilization series.
Unfortunately, backward compatibility can be a problem. The only safe way to play old Windows games is to install them directly an older version of the O.S. or, if you know how, donwload and install a Virtual Machine.

Here’s a few Windows abandonware games available for Microsoft Operative Systems.
