Bored at work, extra time or in the mood for good old fashioned arcade games? Look no further than Archive.org (Internet Archive) – they created new software called “The Internet Arcade”.

Jason Scott , who combined the MAME and JSMESS projects, had this to say about “The Internet Arcade”:

Of the roughly 900 arcade games (yes, nine hundred arcade games) up there, some are in pretty weird shape – vector games are an issue, scaling is broken for some, and some have control mechanisms that are just not going to translate to a keyboard or even a joypad. But damn if so many are good enough. More than good enough. In the right browser, on a speedy machine, it almost feels perfect.

We tried a few of the games, they work! It might be a bit slow and difficult to master at first, but you can probably ace the game-play in a few minutes.
