Play practically every game for five vintage consoles in your web browser
The Internet Archive is on a mission to ensure that decades-old software isn’t lost to the vicissitudes of time — and that anyone can use it on the web for free. In October, that meant releasing a Javascript port of the extremely nimble MESS computer emulator, and 25 choice apps and games. This week, it means that nearly every Atari 2600, Atari 7800, ColecoVision, Magnavox Odyssey², and Astrocade game is now playable on the web. It’s part of the Internet Archive’s new Console Living Room section.
