Basically click the game, it will load in the browser itself and u can play it directly no need for any software needed. Maybe it also works on consoles i dunno.

6900 games right now.

True. I've had this site bookmarked for years. It's still great for anybody that hasn't discovered it though.

It does have Supaplex for anyone who enjoys a little puzzling.

I'd love to know if anyone here has discovered a cool game on the site that they weren't aware of before.

Man, how did I tolerate that glacial pace of Settlers 2 back in the day? But they have SimAnt and SimFarm! Great to see all these good oldies digitized for posterity.
