You can now play 900 arcade games in-browser from the Internet Archive
The Internet Archive has opened access to a library containing over 900 arcade games that are playable in-browser, although some may not work quite well just yet.

The games range from the very early days of arcade gaming with simple black and white interfaces, up to later developments in color and featuring digitized voices, images and music.



Dubbed the "Internet Arcade", the library provides research, comparison and entertainment to users.

Be warned though that some games won't work as nicely as others. They are emulated in JSMAME, part of the JSMESS software package, and aren't completely bug-free by any means. Additionally, some aren't really suited to a keyboard / mouse input.

Still, you can have fun shutgunning through them at: archive.org.

    pity you can't get the source code package then you could download & play without internet,that guy that remade mario for the browser released it after he was forced to close it down,i downloaded it & lo & behold it works as a portable computer game

    @hearmeo
