Abandonware / Obscure Old Western PC Titles

Let‘s get a thread going for this sort of stuff! I know the real ones on here will have plenty. Here’s one I just discovered!



Huh, I'd never come across that myabandonware site before.

_Stone Age_ was a fun puzzle game.
In true form, the box art and title screen look nothing like the game in motion:

The deal is you need to navigate the dinosaur to the exit of each screen, blocks with arrows on them can move but only in the directions indicated. A moving block will move as far as it can; the player cannot stop it once in motion other than it colliding with something else (or the edge of the screen). Blocks can move either by stepping on them and moving in that direction with the dinosaur, or by pulling up a cursor and triggering them remotely.

13 or 14 year old me had a good time with this game.

There are a ton of games I could list off, but for now, the one I focused in on was Golden Oldies: Volume 1 - Computer Software Classics. I‘m interested in it less as a game in its own right and more as a historical artifact, as there’s a very real argument that this is where video game nostalgia began; at least from a commercial standpoint.
