Old School Apps – the home of abandonware games


Old School Apps is a home for retired game software, otherwise known as abandonware. The site plays host to over 500 glorious veteran titles, platformers, adventures, DOS, console and ROMs. You’ll need some patience to set up emulators for most of the stuff, but the nostalgia quota will probably be worth it.

 Old School Apps is an online community created in 2009 in efforts to help keep classic gaming alive. Our site hosts over 500 DOS games from the early 1980s through the end of the millennium. The applications and games you find here are considered to be “abandonware”.

Nigel is the managing editor of the Red Ferret, as well as a freelance columnist for the Sunday Times newspaper in London. Loves tech and fancies himself as a bit of a futurist, but then don’t we all?

  • Thanks, I just spent 20 minutes playing asteroids. Sheesh.

  • Old School apps is a very nice site. I have found a abandonware site recent. I have played many games from their site with dosbox.
