Default 2400+ MS-DOS Games Playable In-Browser

https://archive.org/details/softwarelibrary_msdos_games

Some games don't quite work right or don't load at all. Should just be able to report it though and hopefully they'll fix it. Pretty sweet if you don't wanna load up DOSBox yourself and find the games.

Just a heads up..best way I've found to search for a particular game in the collection is to do this in the search box (couldn't see any other way to actually search easily):

Code:
<gamename> AND (collection:softwarelibrary_msdos_games OR mediatype:softwarelibrary_msdos_games) AND -mediatype:collection
Replace <gamename> with all or part of the game you want to search for. For example:

Code:
Oregon AND (collection:softwarelibrary_msdos_games OR mediatype:softwarelibrary_msdos_games) AND -mediatype:collection
Will bring up anything with Oregon in the name (like the several Oregon Trail games).

Another tip for those who aren't familiar with DosBox -
To slow down a game if it's too fast: Ctrl+F11
To speed up a game if it's too slow: Ctrl+F12
