The In­ter­net Ar­chive www.bit.ly/netarchive The In­ter­net Ar­chive has bol­stered its col­lec­tion of clas­sic games with over 2,000 MS-DOS ti­tles, of­fer­ing them in playable form by mak­ing use of an in-browser em­u­la­tor called EM-DOSBOX (writ­ten by cu­ra­tor Ja­son Scott Sad­of­sky). Old PC games are cer­tainly a bet­ter fit for browser play than the 900 or so coin-op games the ar­chive put on­line last year, but the col­lec­tion stretches to con­sole ports such as Dis­ney’s Aladdin and Me­talGear, too. It’s an eclec­tic se­lec­tion, and the em­u­la­tor’s beta sta­tus means not ev­ery­thing works, but even so there is lots to dig out, in­clud­ing the likes of Si­mAnt, ZakMcKrack­enAnd The Alien Mind­ben­ders, and, um, Sex Vix­ens From Space, each game com­ing with bul­let­pointed info and a de­scrip­tion. We’re go­ing to set­tle in for a ses­sion of Cat­a­comb3-D.
