31 Games in 31 Days

In January, 2010, I was a competitor in the Retrochallenge Winter Warm-up. The point of the contest is to achieve something amazing based on vintage computer hardware and/or software. Other times I had entered, I attempted mostly programming tasks, some of which resulted in TCP/IP stack ports, disk imaging software, and lame games for the Rainbow 100 and Atari ST. The winter 2010 competition led to a large quantity of game reviews.

For my challenge, I attempted to play and review 31 video games for MS-DOS systems. I grew up around MS-DOS computers, and I felt revisiting a collection of games from my youth would be not only challenging, but also enjoyable. All my reviews were posted to this blog. However, for easier browsing, I’ve created a list of games played and links to each one:

  1. Flightmare
  2. Digger
  3. Mind Reader Word Processor
