While we wait for Grand Theft Auto V to make its way to PC, there’s a treasure trove of old games in desperate need of play. No, I’m not talking about previous GTAs — if you head on over to the Historical Software Archive, you can enjoy the likes of Karateka, Akalabeth and Choplifter without installing a thing.
Despite the broad name for the collection, right now it’s made up mostly of games, though you can have a go of WordStar if you want to experience the incredible fun of old-school word processing.
But I’m going to guess that won’t interest most of you. OK, any of you.
Instead, the aforementioned Akalabeth, from Ultima creator Richard Garriott, is not a bad way to spend a few hours, especially if you’re in a dungeon-crawling mood.
