The Internet Archive Just Added Over 1000 Windows 3.1 Games To Its Library

It’s always been possible to get Windows 3.1 games going again thanks to the power of DOSBox. Great little program, really. There’s just one problem: it was a massive pain in the arse. I spent way too many hours trying to make Hodj ‘n’ Podj playable again, to the point where even when I’d gotten it working, I was too exhausted to enjoy it.

Sadly, the Internet Archive hasn’t added Hodj ‘n’ Podj to their library of playable browser games. But there are more than 1000 full and shareware games available, and you can play them right now.

The gaming library is viewable here, although there’s a separate category for Windows 3.1 programs if you’re into that.

Monopoly Deluxe appears to be one of the early favourites, with a couple of thousand views. There are some gems if you do a little scrolling though:

Microsoft Arcade
It’s A Funny Old Game
Missile Attack
Prairie Dog Hunt 2 – Judgement Day
Castle of the Winds

All of the Windows 3.1 apps usable through the Internet Archive have been broken down into Desktop Toys, Games, Productivity and Shareware, and you can access everything right here.
