5 old games you can play online

All your retro favourites, available semi-legally.

  • Prince of Persia

    Created by Jordan Mechner in 1989, the original PoP side-scroller was a massive hit with Apple II fans.
  • Super Mario Bros.

    An unofficial version, differing in visual representation, is available here.
  • Pac-Man

    Widely regarded as a timeless video game classic, a Flash version of it can be found inside the Flash MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) here.
  • Super Mario Bros.

    The iconic Nintendo classic is a favourite for gamers today, despite being released in 1985.
  • Pac-Man

    Pac-Man is one of the most well-known video games of the 1980s, developed as an arcade machine by Namco and released in 1980.
  • Commander Keen

    The only game in this list from after the 1980s — and only just, with the original released on 14 December, 1990 — Commander Keen saw a young space cadet pitted against the thieving Vorticons who stole four vital parts from his back-yard space ship.
  • Frogger

    It can also be found within the yvern.com Flash MAME.
  • Prince of Persia

    Lauded as a great leap forward for the quality of animation in video games, this unofficial reproduction can be found at UnOriginal.co.uk.
  • Commander Keen

    It’s ridiculously addictive — and more complex than it’s given credit for — and can be found at the classic gaming site PLAY.vg.
  • Frogger

    Introduced to gamers in 1981, Frogger pitted one lonely frog against endless hordes of cars, trucks, logs and turtles. Oddly enough, the frog died when it jumped into the water.
