Name: Digger (1983)
License: Freeware
Author: Windmill Software
Category: Classic

Description: Quite similar to the classic games DigDug and Mr.Do, this game gained some sort of PC gaming cult status. I had a couple of requests for this one since starting the site, so I figured I'd better add it. It plays well, offers lots of command line options, and you can turn off the music!

Install command:
$> sudo pacman -S dosbox-digger

Name: Alley Cat (1984)
License: Freeware
Author: Bill Williams
Category: Classic

Description: Even though this is an extremely old game (1984!) and even though it features archaic 4-color CGA graphics, it still can be fun to play. AlleyCat has you playing an ... uh, alleycat. The object is to jump around an alley (and also inside the appartment building) trying to collect as many mice and other objects as possible while avoiding baddies like dogs, sweeping brooms (?) etc. It's neat, and besides the fact that it's a true PC gaming classic, it's amazing how much gameplay is crammed into a 32k zipfile!

Install command:
$> sudo pacman -S dosbox-cat

Name: Gobman (1992)
License: Shareware
Author: Filipe Mateus
Category: Classic

Description: Gobman is one of many Pacman clones that is available on the DOS platform. Gobman features many different game board layouts (unlike the original Pacman game which only has one layout; so it's more similar to Ms Pacman). There are also new items that you can pickup to help you collect the dots and avoid the ghosts. The difficultly level in this game is not as intense as in some other Pacman clones I've played, and it generally plays very smoothly.

Install command:
$> sudo pacman -S dosbox-gobman

Name: Rollo and the Brush Bros (1984)
License: Freeware
Author: Windmill Software
Category: Classic

Description: Rollo and the Brush Bros is a remake of the arcade/atari2600 game "Amidar", which is kinda like Pac-Man meets Qix. The object of the game is to paint around the board with your roller to try to draw boxes while avoiding the enemy paint brushes. While the graphics are CGA-ugly and the sounds are quite annoying PC speaker fare, the game itself is no doubt a classic that many will probably enjoy playing (briefly) if only to relive their memories of playing it many years ago.

Install command:
$> sudo pacman -S dosbox-rollo
