Abandonware DOS title

Remakes of old abandoned games: shooter

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.


Shooter video games are all about shooting targets and avoiding being shot down. The kind of game is often defined by the player perspective (FPS stands for First Person Shooter, TPS stands for Third Person Shooter), or by gameplay: shoot'em up, run and gun, shooting gallery.
