Internet Archive puts classic 70s and 80s games on the net

Post by Zyx » Sat Dec 28, 2013 9:19

Classic video games from the 1970s and 1980s have been put online by the Internet Archive and can be played within a web browser for nothing
or so tells the BBC. These are Atari 2600 and Colecovision games.
Well-recognised titles such as Pacman, Space Invaders and Frogger are all in the archive - with more consoles and games expected soon.
