Remember Space Quest, Police Quest and Leisure Suit Larry from Sierra On-Line? Well they’re back and they’re in your browser. Over at you can relive them in all their EGA, 16 colour, command line glory. Battle the evil Sariens, save Lytton from the Death Angel or go carousing in the back alleys with Larry (definitely not safe for kids).

The games run in most browsers; FF2+, IE6+, Chrome, Safari and Opera, but there are a few bugs, you can’t save your game for one, but you can jump to any point in the game via URLs so you probably won’t get stuck for long. And if you then find yourself getting a hankering for the good old days, you can still purchase most of the Sierra Online games from Amazon and play them via the DOSBox emulator. Note to self, must finish Quest for Glory IV, hopefully they’ve got the bugs worked out. Roger Wilco!
