165 Classic Retro PC Games for Mac OS X

Jun 9, 2011 - 16 Comments

Oregon Trail for Mac

Update: We posted the games link under the assumption that all of the titles were abandonware or freeware, but some commenters are suggesting this may not be the case. We don’t have the resources to independently verify either claim, so we have pulled down the link. That said, you can play many of the definitely abandonware games online in your web browser at Virtual Apple IIgs. Our apologies for any confusion.

Ready to get your retro game on? Don’t miss this massive collection of over 165 classic retro PC games, they’re all free to download and they all run perfectly in Mac OS X in little self-contained DOSBox emulators.


All of your favorite old school games are here, from Alone in the Dark, Castlevania, Civilization, Doom, Duke Nukem, Lemmings, MechWarrior, Mega Man, Mortal Kombat, Oregon Trail, Police Quest, Prince of Persia, Quake, Risk, Sim Ant, Sim City, Space Quest, Ultima, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego, Wing Commander, and so much more. Chances are, if you played it in the 80′s or early 90′s, the game is on this list to download.

Get them all from AtomicWindMill: Classic PC Games for Mac OS X

According to the host, the games are all abandonware, as they say “Download, Extract, Run & Enjoy!”, so get them while they’re hot!

Here’s a couple screenshots, but for obvious reasons I won’t be posting them for all 165 games:

    Very slow downloads, anyone got a bundle from a fast source?

  3. MrBazUK says:

    The server (on crappy host) is being hit pretty bad at the moment. Its had over 1,000 visits in the past 2 hours. Just try again later.

  4. John says:

    A bundle would be really nice!

    • Matthew says:

      Agreed; if they were all in one giant archive that would be amazing. I’m getting little or no download speed right now.

  5. Matthew says:

    Actually, just wanted to also say a huge thanks to the posters of these games – Definitely appreciated.

  6. Outlander says:

    I feel like it needs pointed out that while it’s unlikely that the copyright holders on a number of the games listed would bother persuing legal action, claims by ‘abandonware’ sites that the games are both abandonware and legal to download are untrue.

  7. MrBazUK says:

    Sorry guys, links removed until I can find an anonymous server to upload them to. Please follow me on Twitter @MrBazUK for notification of where they appear.

    Hope most of you got what you wanted form the list anyway. :-)

  8. MrBazUK says:

    Currently uploading the collection to Google Docs. It will be much faster to download from here.

    Expect link to be tweeted later.

  10. John Dsonice says:

    The link on Google Docs does not work.

  11. MrBazUK says:

    Uploading to DropBox…
