That's right its been 9 years since anything at all happened to DOS Gamer. I have re-enabled the registration option, if only to stop many emails I've had about this over the years. Also the forum is working again, complete with all old posts and messages, have fun, also, a big update coming soon, I promise!
DOS Gamer has finally been restored from its former mothballed state. More Games will be added soon. Enjoy DOS Gamers :-)
After many requests, I have decided to abolish the requirement to download DOS Games from DOS Gamer. No new registrations are being accepted, however existing log-ins will continue to function. In place of the registration system, downloads are access by CAPTCHA codes. I hope this new system is more than previous incarnations, and yes after a three year hiatus some more games are on the horizon. Happy DOS Gaming :-) 184075

It's been sometime since a new selection of DOS Games have been added to DOS Gamer, so in the meantime I created NES Game Zone. Now you might be thiking is this a NES Games download site? Well you'd be half correct..Not only can you download over 3000 NES Games. You can play them online, in your browser, no registration, no messing. Just click and play. The site is still in 'beta' so there may be a few bugs but inital tests show everything works. Enjoy!

OK im taking advantage of this work-free period to cram DGZ with even more great games, this is being helped after my ISP upped my connection to 5.5Mbs i'm only paying for 2Mb so i'm not complaining. Today we start with Masque Blackjack , Luigi And Spaghetti , Low Blow, Lunar Lander, Mean Streets, Sango Fighter, Soccer Kid, Toyota Celica GT Rally, The Train: Escape to Normandy, Thomas The Tank Engine And Friends, Wrath Of The Demon and in a zero day turnaround Worms, after a request on the message board this morning.

Then we have Flashback The Quest for Identity, There was a request for the FIFA games I couldnt find the more recent ones, but here is the '94 version FIFA International Soccer and finally Theme Park. Happy gaming.
In response to the growing number of very similar emails that I recieve on a daily basis, I have created a Help/FAQ section to try and answer some of the most common questions. Also made a few changes to the privacy page.
You may have noticed recently that many downloads were corrupted, that site had been left 'unattended' in terms of new content and games etc. I must admit, I have been in two minds as to whether I should shut down DGZ, partlyt down to all the bitchy emails I was getting, and commitments to other things. But fear not I just read all the good emails that i've got over the years, and thought well 7 years is quite a long time for a website. I have fixed the downloads But please note ONLY THE VIBUS AND FASTHOSTS MIRRORS WORK! (Recommend Vibus!)
Hi all, It's been a couple of weeks of silence on DGZ for me at the moment. I've just been really busy on various other projects. But I thought i'd put in the effort to upload 8 new games today. Firstly Maniac Mansion: Day of the Tentacle, (I know there is already a version of D.O.T.T online, but that version is only a demo!) Sinbad And The Throne Of The Falcon, Jungle Strike: The Sequel to Desert Strike, Desert Strike: Return to the Gulf, Night Hawk: F-117A Stealth Fighter 2.0, Tyrian, Star Wars: Dark Forces and Spy Hunter.

Your almost guaranteed ultra fast downloads to compliment the speed boosted DGZ of late!
I finally restored the Myrmidon download, I managed to find the download on an old backup tape.

So I present Missle Defense, Micro Machines, Manhunter New York, Champions of Krynn, Sleuth, Shufflepuk Café, Pack Rat, Amazon Snake, Angel, Andriod, Absolute Pinball, Abductor and 5X.
Only added one game today, Panza Kick Boxing, courtesy of Red_Komunist. I have added a mirror server to the download pages, so if one server is a little busy, downloading should be ok from the other one. Happy DOS Gaming...
Well, not quite. You might be wondering were DGZ disappeared to over the last three days? No we didn't get shut down and I didn't 'give up' as some people suggested on email. Just a new ram stick was needed in the server, and here we are again, Anybody who registered after 19th Aug may need to re-register as backups from this point onwards were discarded.
Yet another milestone reached, DOS Gamer hosts 802 quality DOS Games. No less than 10 new games today. Starting with four great puzzle games Sudoku The Mind Game, Greeny, Centrix, Pentrex. The Soccer management game Ultimate Soccer Manager, one of the best adventure games i've played for some time The Gene Machine. Added an action game River City Ransom, Metal & Lace, seems to be a Double Dragon wannabe, and of course yet another Adult game Marble Cooking. I've also added an all-time classic Bubble Bobble. I've recenlty added Sam & Max Hit the Road, Duracell: Run a bunny and The Immortal, but I didn't mention it! Happy gaming.
Added an excellent adventure game today The Clue!, you play a young criminal who wan't to earn it big through a life of crime, it really is a great game. Also I've just added no more than 5 Adult games. Check out Three Sisters' Story, Cobra Mission, Interactive Girls , Knights of Xentar and 1994 Penthouse Pet of the Year Play-off.
Quite a busy day today, had to re-jig a shed loads of code, for some interesting tricks I have planned for DGZ. If anybody has access to a large FTP server in order for DGZ to create a mirror, let me know. I fixed a couple of downloads today Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure added in the last update seemed to be corrupted, the link for Alien Carnage was also broken. I've added the game Shannara. I've also replaced the screenshot for Major Stryker. Plus there will more great games coming soon….

Just added six great DOS games, Al Qadim - The Genies Curse, MDK, The Untouchables, Metal Mutant, Horror Zombies from the Crypt and Dylan Dog - The Murderers. I've also added a Link Exchange Page, So if you have a website get it listed on DOS Gamer.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, all the downloads seemed to had been deleted. So if you tried downloading yesterday, and just got an error, try again 'coz they've all been restored.

Lemmings III - The Chronicles, Superfly, Berenstain Bears' Learning Essentials, Stickybear Town Builder, Nicky Boom II, Dive Bomber, Mario's Early Years: Fun With Letters and Wild Learning Safari.

A game, a comic and 16 music tracks make up today's update. Todays game is Number Munchers, an edutainment game requested on the message board. The comic is the DooM Comic, It's not everyday you get to see a man hug his Big Fucking Gun :), and finally the music tracks are for the game 1830 Railroads & Robber Barons. Happy Gaming
There was a request on the message board for the Might and Magic games, here are Might and Magic: Book I, Might and Magic II: Gates to Another World and Might and Magic III: Isles of Terra. Also added Descent and Descent II. Plus I neverthought you can make an educational/strategy game based on Napoleon's exile that was fun, check out Fields of Glory.
A lot of refinements to the page engine today. In particular all the download and community points system is working once more. Updated all the old links in the Private Messenger, and I've added a "My Downloads" section., which will let you see your last 20 downloads. More refinements are on the way too. If you have an idea for something that I can implement let me know.
After nearly two months of slacking here are two games, just to show you that this site does (occasionally) update its content! So what are these games I hear you cry? Axia & Mind Shadow. Great games!
I've been busy working on tons of bug fixes and minor enhancements for DGZ of late.I'm working on a "People who downloaded this game also downloaded…" system, but that will take a few weeks for the data to populate, also profile pages now show that users recent downloads,There will shortly be an option to disable this in the members area.
After months of deliberating whether or not to implement this function, I have decicded to include a 'wiki style' system on the review pages. All users (even unregistered!) can edit the reviews. Posts are subject to a 12hour posting delay, in which time junk and vandalism attempts can be reverted.This is a trial feature that may be withdrawn if abused!
As reported yesterday, there has been an incident of file tampering. To protect the integrity of DOS Gamer, and to alleviate any further problems, the whole site has been reverted to a previous backup. No user accounts have been lost, however there may be one or two things (cheats, music files) that might not have been archived! Send me an PM if you spot anything.
As part of the ongoing database improvements, I have altered the 'genre pages' to allow one to refine listings. I.e. sort by name,votes,upload date etc. This should make finding games a little easier.
Had a couple of requests on the message board, only been able to upload Museum Madness. But I did add cheats and a walkthru for it! I've also made BIG changes to the database system and backend system. All games can be found by typing dosgamezone.com/game (using hyphens "-" as spaces and missing out most punctuation i.e. ,'$: etc. Not long now until an uber update I think!
Continuing from yesterday, I have made a Picture Gallery, so you can browse images uploaded by members to the message board and being used as avatars. Also added the whole CD soundtrack for the game Loom. I've also carried out quite a few tweaks to the back-end database code. The new database system is a matter of days away.....I got a nice big cheque from the advertising program today, that will cover the hosting for a while :-).
No new games online today :-( But I have made a few tweaks to the homepage today, It was annoying me so I moved a few things around. Also i've added a birthday section, in case you curious who's birthday it is today. This info is pooled from profile pages, so if you don't want to be included, just leave out your date-of-birth. Also the last five message board posts can be seen on the front page, which means you no longer have to go to the board, snooping to find new posts. Peace and Enjoy
Time to go on some new adventures now with three new exciting DOS games for you then delve into stock market with the fourth game for this update! First become a great pioneer as you master your own independance in The Oregon Trail. And if that isn't enough for you, master the seas and accumulate your wealth in Uncharted Waters I and Uncharted Waters II. Last but not least, dabble in the stock market in 1830 Railroads & Robber Barons.
If it is raining where you are, and your struggling to find something to entertain yourself with, here are 13 great games that will help the hours slip away. In today's great selection we have 10 Apogee classics Jumpman Lives!, Major Stryker, Monster Bash I, Monster Bash II, Monster Bash III, Mystic Towers, Secret Agent, 3D Pitfall, Crystal Caves II and Crystal Caves III. Followed by two ID/Raven titles Heretic: Shadow of the Serpent Riders and Hexen: Deathkings. Then last we have Airbucks. I also added a walkthrough for Zak McKraken and the Alien Mindbenders.
Most of this selection comes from a message board request, but there are a couple I have added and not cared to mention. Todays games are Theme Hospital, 3D Tic Tac Toe, Pizza Tycoon, Hocus Pocus, Space Invader, Little Big Adventure and X-COM: Apocalypse. I've deleted a couple of games because they were duplicated. Total games now 712!
Whilst I writhe in agony at a recent knee injury what more of an opportunity do I need to upload, all the games that you, the users, have been asking for. All these games have been requested in the request forum. MechWarrior, The Games: Winter Challenge, The Games: Summer Challenge, California Games II, California Games I, Gunship 2000 and Genesia. But wait, theres more, somebody requested Krusty's Fun House, via email. These are all great games, have fun playing.
Today's update marks the passing of the 700th game. Currently there are 701 games online, the all important 701st game, means DOS Gamer can boast "over 700 games." So what are the games that tippled the game count from the 600's to the 700's? Well how about Romance of The Three Kingdoms I (II & III are already online!), Trolls (remember them?) and WWF Wrestlemania. (You gotta remember that!) Have fun!
It's the last Sunday of March, which for the UK and most of the EU, means we are now officially ready to enjoy our summer, maybe? Don't forget to put your clocks forward an hour. Although our U.S, visitors have to wait until April 2nd.
It's been a little time now since the last update. So here are nine classics Bugs, Wide World of Sports Boxing, Beyond the Titanic, Jill of the Jungle III, Jill of the Jungle II, Spear Of Destiny, A Dudley Dilemma, Shadow Caster and Life & Death II.
A website can only be as powerful as the clever sh*t making it all work on the back-end i.e. Server code and Databases, it has become obvious for some time now that DOS Gamer is struggling to cope with the increased load of users, games, active connections, account manangement, etc. To combat this, the WHOLE site is going to have to be re-written to work with the much faster SQL Server database system which, when complete will see a huge speed increase right accross DOS Gamer. I am already hard at work writing the new platform, which is going to mean updates are going to be scarce, for the next month. But it'll be worth the wait. :-)
Today's update is to the music library, DOS Gamer now has 263 tunes online for 37 games, I've just added 125 music files for the following games Arkanoid 2, Hero Quest, DJ Puff, Dizzy Magicland, 4th & Inches, Dizzy Magicland, Deathtrack, Home Alone, Body Blows, Jones in the Fast Lane, Quest for Glory III: Wages of War, The Lost Vikings, The Simpsons Arcade Game, and Monster Bash.
What a mixed selection today's update of DOS oldies are. Ranging from simple line-graphics games from 1982 to encyclopedia's on space exploration, platformers, racing games, ASCII games and even The Simpson's make an appearance on today's list. So without further ado, here is todays games! Duckhunt, Funnels & Buckets, Speed Haste, Space Adventure, Gulivers Discovery Land, Jazz Jackrabbit, War Lords II, War Lords, Team Suzuki, Waterloo, Pac Girl, Panzer General, Pac In Time, No Future, Bad Blood, The Simpsons Arcade Game, The Godfather, Turbo Outrun and last but not least Lander.
Firstly I added Carmageddon last month but it looks like I didn't post a news item about it. Next a great game got put online today, Sly's Hangman uploaded by the developer, 150 community points to the good man! Next is a game that I spent hours playing in my younger days, Toxic Bunny and last but not least Electric Crayon: Dinos are Forever. Four great games, taking the game count to 670, meaning only 30 games from 700.
The DOS Gamer, game music library, is now ready to use. The sound tracks are in a variety of formats, including MOD, Midi and MP3. There are only 13 games featured at the moment but I will be adding more in the coming weeks.

Blackjack, Biliardo, Narco Police, Drug Wars, Steel Panthers, Dope Wars, Double Dragon III, Wasteland, Up Periscope, Utopia: The Creation of a Nation, Bloodwych, Blood Money and Blades of Steel. How long until we have 777 games online?
There has been a problem all day with new registrations not being accepted, if you've tried to register and couldn't try again now, as all problems appear to have been resolved.

So for your gamimg pleasure I present Yogho Yogho, Little People Main Street, Little People Farm, Klax, Bicycle Holiday, Race the Nags, Charlie Chaplin, Leather Goddesses of Phobos II, Donald Ducks Playground, Buzz Aldrin's Race Into Space, Teenage Queen and Adventures of Maddog Williams in the Dungeons of Duridian.

Also a game that got corrupted, has made it's return, the excellent Doom 3: Mr Smiley Heads Safari. Also Contra has been deleted from DGZ as it was unable to run in several test environments.

Aswell as this I also mangaged to squeeze in Cheesy Invaders, Links: The Challenge of Golf, Hi Octane and Duke Nukem 3D. That 621 games available on DOS Gamer.
Having just uploaded eight great DOS Games, namely 3d Tic Tac Toe, Jill Of The Jungle, Crime Wave, Cover Girl Strip Poker, Canasta, Conquests of Camelot: The Search for the Grail, 4 Way Brick Breaker and Lakers Vs Celtics. The current game count is now 605, DOS Gamer officialy has over 600 games!
Todays new games follow a theme of sorts, not in respect of genre, but they all contain the word "Quest" in thier titles. Starting with Police Quest 4: Open Season the previous three games are already online. The whole Space Quest series: Space Quest 1: The Sarien Encounter, Space Quest 1: Roger Wilco in the Sarien Encounter, Space Quest 2: Vohauls Revenge, Space Quest 3: The Pirates of Pestulon, Space Quest 4: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers and Space Quest 5: The Next Mutation. Then finally, Quest for Hussein.
What a busy weekend of uploads, firstly I would like to give a shout to curien1000 for uploading Lost In Time, Dinopark Tycoon, Pirates Gold, Strife, Prince Of Persia 2 and Ultima I. Incidently I was going to add most of the Ultima games in the near future, so I thought no time like the present and uploaded Ultima I, Ultima II, Ultima III, Ultima IV, Ultima V and Ultima VI. Then I got carried away and uploaded Streetrod, Ninja Rabbits, Hard Hat Mack, Rocket Raid, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Nicky Boom, Cargo Bay, Bumpy's Arcade Fantasy, Baroll, Barney Bear Goes to Space and Quake. Enjoy!
Well if the previous upload wasn't enough then how about Transport Tycoon, Railroad Tycoon, The Lost Vikings, Wing Commander and Loom. Thanks to curien1000 again for these grea gems. Also I even had time to create a Firefox Search Plugin (You can only get it with Firefox!) 27 new games in one day is some accomplishment!
I've been feeling a bit ill over the past few days, so I had to find something to do, because I took the day off work. I decided it was time to launch the community points system, at the moment its purely experimental, but it is a way of determining how much of an active member you are. You can check your points in the member’s area or at /points.
I've just added Corn Cob (shareware) and Corn Cob 3D, also i've changed the advert system, there are even more ads in the database now :-) But still no popups! Remember sponsor's adverts pay to keep DOS Gamer Free, a little click here and there really does make a difference.
Bored of DOS games? Well now DOS Gamer has Jokes, Video Feeds, Recipes, Desktop Themes, Screensavers, Wallpapers, WinAmp skins, Yahoo Skins, Mouse Pointers, Desktop Icons and XP Visual Styles and you thought DOS Gamer was just where old games come to perish!
A few small changes today, firstly the member's area has has a slight revamp, it was looking a little sorry :( I've added a link to Technews (Just something i'm testing) The community points system is now at beta level, fresh out of alpha testing. I'm also trying to compile all the missing screenshots!
I've started updating some of the games do not have screenshots included on the review pages. I've added 14 tonight and they are The Catacomb Abyss, 4K Adventure (4KA), 9:05, A Bloody Life, Monkey Blast!, Cells, Deep Space Drifter, Voyages of the Starship Enterprise, Tiger Tank, Ogre, Jazz Jackrabbit Holiday Hare, Evets and BobRob's Poker.
No new games yet :-(, But I made a significant improvement to the image renderer today, All the screenshots for the games now have silky smooth crisp graphics, some of the screenshots previously were terrible, with large "blotchy" patches and large amounts of "hazing." I feel an upload surge just around the corner.
I added two games yesterday Rad van Fortuin (Dutch Wheel of fortune) and Ports of Call, but didn't post a message about them. But, if that wasn't enough i've just added three more classics. The Fools Errand, Baby Jo in Going Home and Ashes Of Empire. Happy DOS Gaming
Happy new year to all the DOS Gamer members, past, present and future. Keep on enjoying DOS games throughout 2006.
Thanks must be given to Volturnus, who uploaded five fantastic games, Wings of Fury, The Black Cauldron, Hook, Bureau 13 and Cannon Fodder 2. Whilst updating there was also a request for Lotus. I also added Jones in the Fast Lane (Like an early version of The Sims), and the PC port of Attack of The Mutant Camels.
It all started last night when this white powdery stuff a.k.a snow, started spewing from the heavens above, but it is so bitterly cold. Firstly there were complaints about a missing download for Monkey Blast, well this has been fixed now. I also found time to add these eleven gems: Inspector Gadget, PC Rally, Castle Wolfenstein, Jack The Ripper, The Black Orb, Caesar, Body Blows, Argo Checkers, James Pond 2 - Codename RoboCod and Lemmings 2 - The Tribes. Plus Life and Death makes a return, it used to be online but the file became corrupted.
The first batch of updates for almost a month now, but here are twelve classics to play on the long cold winter's nights that we seem to be enduring at the moment. Well the new games are Playroom, Xenon, Xenon 2 - Megablast, Zeliard, The Games Winter Challenge, X-COM: UFO Defense, X-COM: Terror from the Deep, Wizball, World Karate Championship, World Cup Soccer, Puzzle Fun Pak and Adventure Fun pack. Have fun and stay warm.
Firsty let me begin by getting into the spirit of the season, and wishing aall you happy surfers a merry xmas and a happy new year. Secondly, You may have noticed DOS Gamer has been rather quiet at the moment, Just to let you know there are quite a few surprises next year planned for DOS Gamer. Today I decided to re-work the search system, you can now search the web, right here from DOS Gamer. How neat. Also i've re-jigged the Top Download pages, you can now choose to see the most / least downloads, in addition you can view the most rated downloads and see toadys last 50 downloads. All that coding...
I have just added now 6 great new games, which sends the total game count of DOS Gamer teetering over the 500 mark. I started off with a bit of a theme by adding Simpsons Tetris, Simpsons Tetris II and The Simpsons Bart vs the Space Mutants. Then the old classic starring Lara Croft Tomb Raider(demo), a Russian card game called Durak and last but by no means least Airball.
Well, another day, another seven games. Today's selection of newbies are Test Drive III & Skyroads Xmas Two brilliant racing games. Raptor: Call of the Shadows, Alcatraz, Some puzzle called Wibbles, a sort of tetris-like game called Dr Rudy and an adult game Simusex (This is explicit!) DOS Gamer's total game archive now contains 495 DOS Games.
Quite a mixed bag today, Just added a game called Adventure, an RPG Ancient Domains Of Mystery (ADOM), a cool shoot 'em up Ack Ack. 4x4 Off Road Racing (Self explanatory), a cool shoot 'em up game AAARGH!, followed by the classic beat 'em up Street Fighter and last but not least, the cute platformer Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure. Thats all folks.
Yesterday was a bit of a maintenance day, I added another download mirror, which should free up some bandwidth from the server. I fixed the download links for Batman The Movie and Blort. I'm adding a walkthrough section, if anybody has the skill to complete some games on DOS Gamer, and the creative flair to write a walkthrough guide, please email me. Also I will add as many game 'manuals' or readme files that I can find. A section in the pipeline is game music. (Literally sountracks ripped from DOS Games.) I also fixed the comment boards for each game, user names weren't being shown for the poster. XP SP 2 Users, who are having problems downloading can read this guide.
Some slick new changes added over the weekend. Firstly the game review pages have had a little facelift, as has the download pages. Each category view, now shows 15 games at a time, with screenshots. Also I added an excellent game Quest for Al-Qa'eda - The Hunt for Bin Laden which is freeware. Made a few minor tweaks (again) to the login system, (one day it may be perfect). I'm going to add a new section in the very near future....Game music, you will be able to download just the music, ripped from the games on DOS Gamer. Also the Emulation section is finally online. What a productive weekend.
This morning resulted in quite a number of users having there IP Addresses/Accounts BANNED, for spamming the message board with useless marketing dross (SPAM). DOS Gamer has a zero tolerance for spam, for this reason Guest posting has now been disabled for all forums/comment systems. It's a shame that if something is abused it is removed.
Hello this is munky, I am posting to say the little problem with signing in and new registrations has been resovled. Martin is very happy :)
Now I can post messages on the message boards yay!
For every problem solved .... Three more are created. The private message alert was causing some browsers *cough* IE *cough*, to sign users after mere seconds. Very frustrating, On the other hand some browsers *cough* Netscape/Firefox *cough* were claiming users were logged in when they weren't. Hopefully this bug has been fixed, only time will tell ;-)
I'm working on the following new features for DOS Gamer.
A 'Who visited yesterday?' page.
The chat room may make a re-appearance very shortly.
Private messages will be emailed to you when your not signed in.
Notification when somebody replies to your message board postings.
Your Zodiac sign will be added to your profile!
No new games today, But I have made a new logo for the site :-) and have re-jigged the homepage. Made quite a few bug fixes to the Private Messenger. I can see this being my prefered method of communication :-). I'm off to bed now so enjoy the shiny new bits of DOS Gamer.
Todays uploads are all worth a download! I've added a total of 7 games, which takes the DOS Gamer game count, to a whopping 476. Top titles include Home Alone, Sim City 2000, Monopoly, Lion King and Jurassic Park. I've been really hooked on The Incredible Machine, so I was delighted to find The Even More Incredible Machine lurking around on an old CD, McDonald Land was also on this CD.
Yet another update, I've just added 5 new games: Montezuma's Revenge, Carrier Command, Tank Wars, Deathtrack and a German game, Das Boot. Have fun there's going to be some big releases added very shortly. Watch this space....

Due to some ISP downtime i've not been able to add any new games as promised :-( It started early saturday and lasted until mid-afternoon today :-( I put it down to the fireworks! BTW, If you missed the fireworks you turn them back on here, and if you want them off click here. I'll do my best to add some games this week. In seperate news I moved back into my parents today. I also crashed the Volvo today, good job i've got the Van as a backup. Peace all.
|Not many events from 1605 are still remembered by a huge number of people. Yet the Gunpowder Plot of 5th November - and the foiling of it - is still celebrated every year, this year marks the 400th year since the plot was foiled.
No new games today, just some celebratory pyrotechnics.
A contemporary sketch of the conspirators. Guy Fawkes.
Just a couple of slight adjustments made to DOS Gamer today, I tidied up the front page a little, and embarrass the newest member by pointing them out! More games will be added at the weekend.
If you visited yesterday, then you would have seen ghosts haunting the pages. If you missed it you can enable the ghosts by visiting dosgamezone.com/spooks, just type in that url to turn the ghosts on. To turn them off click the link at the very bottom of any page.
Don't get too spooked, the ghosts are for today only! Have a great hallowe'en!
No new games today but a nice new feature .... private messaging you can send a private message to any user by using the new option in the members area, by clicking on the link in a members' message board posting or by replying to a message you have been sent. No need to check for new messages, whenever you recieve a new message, the next page you load will tell you and give you a link to the message.

Plus Sim City and Out of This World(aka Another World). Even more great games to come. BTW DOS Gamer now has 441 games online.
As a little bonus I just added Grand Theft Auto (GTA). Yes it IS a DOS game, but there is also a windows version. I've included both. I've even included all the cheats!
That 500 mark is getting pretty close. Were at 447 games, and 3 applications. I just added 1-0 Soccer Manager, Advanced Destroyer Simulator, Blort, Small Tetris and Pipes. I also added Visual Basic 1.0 for DOS earlier this morning.
The cakes represent my age. Another year on and still DOS Gaming.

Well they are Armchair Quarterback, Alpha Waves, Amulet of Yendor, Archer MacLean's Pool, All Point Bulletin, Annals of Rome, Amber Star and last but not least Allan Border's Cricket.Which takes the number of directly downloadable DOS Games to 430.
Well, im 20% towards the target of 500 games. Now hosting 420 games, another 80 and i've done it. Anyway, if your wondering whats games have been added, see the whats new page. Bye for now.
The bastard police force in this country are wholly incapable of proving anything, and couldn't even catch a f***king cold so once again I'm on poilice bail :-( This has been going on for months I wish that they would just decide what to do and just charge me or drop it. Ah well at least i'm still free to roam the streets.
All day i've been thing, damn it, I have 397 games, only three more. So the first thing I did when I laid my hands on a computer was add three games, just to hit that 400 target. Now its time for a new target, 100 new games in 28 days, taking the total to 500. The newbies are Gemworld, Supernova and Mines Of Titan. Also this counts as a double-daily update, I added 4 games at around 1am this morning and this batch was added around 9pm!
Just 3 more games and DOS Gamer has hit the 400 mark. Todays update follows a litle bit of a theme, all the games are Sierra classics, they are The Incredible Machine and the Police Quest Series 1-3 Police Quest 1: In Pursuit of the Death Angel, Police Quest 2: The Vengeance and Police Quest 3: The Kindred. Enjoy!
After a rather easy nights working driving around s*o**ng c*n*ab** with Munky, We went to munkys house and hit on a kewl idea, how about showing screenshots of the games on the genre pages?? Well it was a rather labourious task but we managed it, with me frantically coding and munky checking i'd done shit right and now its a good job well done! Just look at any genre of game to see the funky new screenshots.
Im a little tired, confused, and a bit wasted, so what better than add some more games to DOS Gamer. I've only added three games today, they are Sky Sharks, Kangaroo and Kaas. Not that i'll even remember when I wake up, ah well enjoy!
Just added 10 games. Thats more than double yesterday's update and only 10 away from 400 games, and what a wide selection of games they are to, Vlak, Vulcan, Vette, Vegas Gambler, Vaxine, Excelsior, Family Fued, Faces,Face Off and last but by no means least Astrotit. Watch this space for 400 games.
You know with just one mouse click, DOS Gamer can become bigger and stronger, (I'm referring to the banner adverts at the top of all DOS Gamer pages!) When someone clicks one, DOS Gamer receives a small amount of money, now i'm not asking you to click all the adverts, just a few now and then. It really will help keep DOS Gamer alive. Remember DOS Gamer has always been FREE and has a strict NO POPUPS policy.
OK, Three new games just added Triplane Turmoil, Last Half Of Darkness and Hampton Manor. Also these games were added but never actually mentioned Lemmings Xmas '93 and Willy the Beer Varmit's War. This takes the total number of games arhived at DOS Gamer to 376! Have Fun.
I'm getting stuck into re-building this site into what it's former self, today I reworked the download pages slightly, I know there is a couple of bad links if you stumble across one you can report it in one click, please help me out :-)
You can also now submit game cheats/hints/walk-throught etc on each game's review page, neat eh?
I did say two days ago I felt an update was just around the corner, so here are 10 splendid classics to enjoy. Firstly there are two great brainteasers Triskelion and Flux, the french hangman game Pendu. A very old platform Montezuma's Revenge and an old game with a new twist Lazer Chess, a typical shoot-em Flying Tigers and an interesting Firefighter game .... its in ASCII!! Then there was a request for Quest for Glory games, so I added Quest for Glory, Quest for Glory II: Trial By Fire and Quest for Glory III: Wages of War. Have fun
It's been a little quiet over the last few days, but I thought i'd re-assure you all that, I am still here, i've just been working on the bit of DOS Gamer you don't get to see. Has anyone heard about Super Galactic Alphabet??? Like a secret code language from the Commander Keen games. Well i've had great fun creating an English to SGA translator. Also, fancy knowing who's signed in today?? This is not the greatest set of updates, but still fun.
Here are some fantastic games just added to DOS Gamer Elite, Arnhem, Short Line and Alien Phobia. There was a request some time ago for King's Quest. I did'nt know which game to add (there are 7) so I decided to add all seven, along with walkthroughs, just incase your stuck trying to complete one of the games. The Kings Quest Series compriese of the episodes: Kings Quest 1: Quest for the Crown, Kings Quest 1: VGA Remake, Kings Quest 2: Romancing the Throne, Kings Quest 3: To Heir is Human, Kings Quest 4: The Perils of Rosella, Kings Quest 5: Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder and Kings Quest 6: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow.
