Abandonware DOS title

Games based on movies sorted by release date

In the 80s and the 90s we all saw a lot of good blockbuster movies come out. Some of them were good, some of them were bad. Unfortunately, most of video games based on movies (called 'tie-in') were really bad. Developers tried to put everything they could in those games and divided gameplay in different parts, each of them with a different gameplay: platform, driving sim, puzzle, etc. The best games based on a movie are those that focus on a single genre: Indiana Jones games, Star Wars games etc.
