Abandonware DOS title

The best UK games

Games set in the United Kingdom are more than a few. A lot of them are based on one of the most iconic (and fictitious) British characters: Sherlock Holmes. The popular detective is in good company: a lot of games set in the UK were inspired by other popular characters such as Robin Hood, King Arthur, Jack the Rupper or even Doctor Who.
