Running a modern Crysis-like game at 1920 x 1200 is no doubt a thrill if you have the required hardware to do so. But for all the eye candy that bombards gamers today, sometimes a “simpler life” is being sought out. The good ‘ol days of gaming with graphics measured in bits instead of MHz or RAM allotment cater as some would call it, to a more “real” or enjoyable sense of gaming. Getting this classic fix in the modern age has been made possible thanks to countless emulators and ROMs. But the process of downloading the emulator and individual ROMs can be a pain at times as can actually getting everything to run correctly. That’s where “PuppyArcade” comes in.

This disc-based OS is developed specifically for running ROMs and classic games. Games from classic systems such as Amiga, Atari, Commodor, and even more modern systems like NES, PS1, and Gamecube among others all have a spot at this table. A slightly more expanded, though certainly not final list of supported systems include:

Amiga (500, 1000, 2000), Atari (ST, 800, 800XL, 130XE, 5200), Amstrad (CPC, Plus, VEB), Arcades, Colecovision, Commodore (64, 128, VIC20, PET), GameBoys (GB, GBC, GBA), GameGear, Genesis/MegaDrive, MasterSystem, MS DOS, N64, NeoGeo, NeoGeo CD, NES/Famicom, PC Engine/TurboGrafix, PSX, ScummVM, SNES and ZX Spectrum (16k, 48k, 128k, +2, +2A, +3) & more!

If a single system just won’t cut it and/or your consider yourself a video game connoisseur, it’s be in your best interest to check out this link and pick up PuppyArcade. I’m downloading as we speak to give it a fair shot. In the meantime, give it a try yourself and let us know how it goes.

    Sucks this won’t work on the Mac OS. Oh well, I have a ‘jailbroken’ Wii that houses all my emulators, I’ll stick with that on my 42 incher any day ;)
