Remakes of old abandoned games: strategy

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.


Games based on strategy allow for reasoning and planning of one’s moves and actions. The gameplay may be based on player’s turns (Turn-based Strategy) or it may be in real time (Real-Time Strategy, RTS). These games focus on strategy and tactics rather than action, sometimes with the addition of financial or logistic features.
