Software Library

The Internet Archive Software Library is the ultimate software crate-digger's dream: Tens of thousands of playable software titles from multiple computer platforms, allowing instant access to decades of computer history in your browser through the JSMESS emulator.

The intention is to ultimately have most major computer platforms available; currently, the collection includes the Apple II, Atari 800, and ZX Spectrum computers. In each case, sub-collections contain vast sets of disk and cartridge images. Genres include games, applications, utilities, demos and operating systems.

To see a curated set of these many programs, with contextual descriptions and information, visit the Historical Software Collection, curated by the Internet Archive's Jason Scott. If you'd like to volunteer to help describe and increase knowledge on disks in the Software Library, contact Jason at [email protected].

Now available: The game that caused Adventure International to shut down, that forced Infocom to give up text adventures, and the product that Steve Jobs pushed to the point of getting fired from apple. JUMPY GUY is an RPG, a scroller, an action-packed mega-puzzle. The review, pulled from the pages of Nibble Magazine 1985, describes it thusly: You are a guy who jumps. You will run and press the space bar to jump over all manner of obstacles. Getting 50 points or above, makes you a jump master....

Various Games (Tetris, Taipei, and Mines) (1993) Seems to include the versions of Tetris and Taipei from http://ama-lingua.com/details/BestOfMicrosoftEntertainmentPackDiskAssy170-951-00119943.5-1.44MBEnglish but Mines doesn't seem to be from that set. Mines was made by Ian Heath. I used a Windows for Workgroups 3.11 installation from dosbox to get emulation in browser working.
