    Hours of fun - return to DOS games

    I've just come across some old copies of SkyRoads and SkyXmas which were lurking on an old PC, and I've rediscovered the brilliant fun they are to play! DOS will never leave us..

    This is a very good timekiller by the way, but be careful when the boss comes around - I'm not to blame if you haven't finished the end of week statistics yet

    Cheers,

    Aaaaaah!

    Yes, Leisure Suit Larry in the land of the lounge lizards!

    J_K9 keep your eyes open when you go into supermarkets. I picked up a CD with hundreds of DOS games on it for 1.50

    1.50? Tesco or Sainsbury's?

    Going back to our friend Larry, I think you'll find the new, real 3D version is - er - radical, to say the least!

    There's nothing like some good ol' fashion Dos gaming to pass the time. Infact i wasted 7hours playing Dos games today..

    And that 3d version of leisure suit larry looks like fun..

    I think my brother's got it - I'll ask him about it

    If anyone completes the game, let me know; I'm still having a bit of trouble on the more difficult SkyRoads levels

    Good times.
    I'm sure many people here have a golden oldie that always brings back happy memories.

    Maybe you can find it here...

    http://www.reloaded.org
    or here...

    Or if you used to love the old arcade games (Galaga anyone?) have a google for MAME.
